“People were created to be love and things were made to be use and the reason we have such chaos in the world is because we use people and love things.”

Ada E. Crosby. I was born, raised and educated in the state of Mississippi. I grew up with educators, so education was a constant part of my life. In the second grade two of my maternal aunts was my teacher and other was my principal of my school. My oldest sister was also an Elementary school teacher and someone I deeply emulated.

My Chapter 2 Lived Experiences from Nine HIV+ African Women That Contributed to Their HIV Seroconversion and Their Insights for HIV Prevention in the Refractive Thinker Healthcare: The Impact on Leadership, Vol 15.

Tell me something you have overcome or success you have achieved. I have overcome many things, including death itself. First, I’m a survivor of years of spouse abuse, physical, mental and emotional. This is one of the reasons I was able to relate with to my study participants since many of them had suffered from abuse from their partners.  From that abuse, I have succeeded in the freedom of forgiving my former spouse.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
