Hello ladies and gentlemen!
My site is currently under construction. Major changes will be taking place over the next few months. I am no techie, but I am doing my best to make my dream site a reality. Please be patient with me!
I love and appreciate you all!
My Purpose for creating LADYHOOD journey:
As I get older, I realize that I have not made mistakes, but I have done some things that I wish someone would have prevented me from doing. I know we all have to learn in our own way (usually the hard way), but I wish I would have had someone; a mentor that would have disclosed their struggles, experiences, what to look out for when it comes to relationships, love, friendships, college life, or even social concerns, I feel would have really benefited me.
Often times, we run to our family and friends for this advice, but their biases can pose concern when giving accurate advice. They love you, and have their own opinions on how your life should be because they want what they think, is the best for you.
We all do this…
Have you ever given advice to a friend about their relationship, and as soon as you are with your significant other, partner, boyfriend, lover, or even a FWB, all those words of wisdom disappeared as if you never uttered them in the first place? If so, this is the blog site for you.
Talking to a stranger, someone who does not know you (a mentor), can reveal those inadequacies that family and friends can’t.
I want to be that mentor for you!

My Personal Bio #shareyourstory
I dedicate LADYHOOD journey to my daughter and to all girls & women of the world!
I am a growing woman and first and foremost, a mother to my beautiful daughter. I founded the LADYHOOD journey brand for my daughter to learn to be the best version of herself; to become the strong, modest, and purposeful lady, that I know she will be one day. I received my BA in Creative Writing in 2012. Two weeks before I graduated as a MSW at California University of Pennsylvania, in 2015, I found out that I was pregnant. My dreams were put on hold. I was living in a one-bedroom apartment, expecting a child, and had no income due to an unpaid maternity leave. I was depressed, scared, and guilty about bringing my daughter into the world when I was not financially stable.
I stopped writing for about 8 months. During the last month of my third trimester, I decided to not let my depression take over my life because my daughter needed her mother, healthy. I decided to start blogging for her, in hopes of finding my love for writing again. I knew that I wanted to use my BA and MSW to help girls and women, but I didn’t know where to begin, so I just started writing. As I wrote, my blog began to fill up with comments on my posts about beauty standards, motherhood, and college. I was amazed that my posts were helping others, when in reality, I was still trying to help myself.
I found my passion for writing again and for helping women. Overtime, I was able to focus my blog in areas of love and relationships, beauty standards, self-love, equality, motherhood, college life, and health and wellness; build my brand, and in COMING SOON, LADYHOOD journey will offer inspirational and motivational apparel.
LADYHOOD journey is a safe-space in hopes of helping teen girls entering college, mothers, lesbian and transgender women and all females, young and old, to see that they are capable of being the best versions of themselves; “we are more than what popular culture says we are.” Together we can take this journey, and advocate for women’s rights, peace, self-love, and equality for all.
LADYHOOD is a journey that never ends. Your journey is our journey…live, love, and learn from one another.
We are not born ladies, but we can become ladies.
