Tell us a little about yourself:

I am a single mother to an amazing 6-year-old girl. I work as a security officer at an alternative school by day and am a licensed massage therapist at Massage Envy by night. My goal is to work for myself and open up my own spa in the next year. I’m a compassionate and loving person with a funny sense of humor. I love to enjoy life, crack jokes and make people smile, even when everything in my life seems like it’s falling apart. I strive to reach our youth to not only keep them from making reckless decisions but to insure there’s always a trusted adult nearby that can be counted on.

What’s your eye story?

In 2010 I was shot 4 or 5 times while celebrating my 21st birthday right in front of my brand-new townhouse in Jonesboro, Ga. One bullet went directly through my left eye and another through my left cheek. Both bullets turned upward and lodged themselves into my brain. This directly resulted in the enucleation of my left eye and 3 years of painful lockjaw. Not to mention additional surgery was required for my left knee, which had been shattered by another one of the bullets fired.


What has been the most challenging mentally?

The most challenging mentally has been loving myself for who I am and coming to terms with the fact that I’ll probably never find out who tried to take my life away from me that day…


What has been the most challenging physically?

The most challenging thing physically has been accepting how I look in the mirror, as well as in public. Also, learning how to put in my prosthetic eye!

Where are you now in your recovery?

I had reconstructive surgery on December 14th, 2022. I’m starting my process of recovery all over again while I wait for my eye to heal so that I can get fitted for a proper prosthetic eye.

What advice would you give to someone going through their eye impairment journey?

Think of yourself as a superhero! Every day someone will recognize you and see you as an inspiration because you not only show love to others with physical differences, but you remind everyone that beauty is skin deep. Be proud of the fact that your story can make an impact on someone else’s life!
