My 12-year-old said something to me that stuck in my head, he said "mommy in this life creativity must be your oxygen". At that moment, I knew that this film, is a project that must be completed, even if there are risks. I have taken so many risks in my life for the love of others, this film is my commitment to balancing my giving and receiving. It's time, that I give to me more creatively and inspire others to do the same in this season.
I am excited to see my first film manifest into reality by doing the very best with what I have.

From poverty to prosperity, whispering to resounding loudly from the depths of my soul to the songs of my heart, to the power of mindfully shifting my thoughts to loving lands. This is what my inner child has been wanting me to birth NOW.
In 2021, I wrote a book that shares pieces of my story in a poetic memoir. My short film "Chronicles of The Inner Child", brings some of those poems to life, sharing the story that inspired the poems in visually animated ways that have been innate to me since a child.
This project is me returning to get the child, the pre-teen and even the young adult in me whose dreams wake her up in the night and the day. I know that this film will inspire people of all ages as well as parents, who may have felt like they needed to silence the cries and creativity of the child inside, in order to survive, be accepted and or parent the children they have. My heart centered prayer is that this project be healing for you to view, just as it is for me to create.
"Chronicles of My Inner Child" is a One-Woman Show being bought to fruition as a short documentary film. This short poetic documentary brings my poetry, performance artistry and various aspects of beauty to life on film.
The child in me has called upon me to awaken the unique gifts and talents the adult me has at times suppressed in survival mode. I am using my voice in a way that I have yet to, as an animated performance artist front and center.
Beauty, performance art, poetry, LOVE, storytelling and brief reflections on my journey as a Brooklyn girl who carried pain rooted in trauma unconsciously until I deeply understood how to transmute my pain into many of my creative gifts and talents.
From early Brooklyn life to a courageous move as a 22 year old single mother to Atlanta in the early 2000s, to becoming a mother again in 2011, who rediscovers all the many pieces of herself along with the power of the realization of the pain she carried and the depth of her healing through creativity and wholistic wellness; this film is poetic and tells pivotal pieces of my story through poetry, beauty, love and performance artistry.
This film is me transmuting my pain into my passion for poetry, beauty and performance art, in an authentic true short story about me told by me creatively.
Funding is for:
Exact funding for the project how I envision: As a creative being, entrepreneur and mother, I know all about things coming to fruition differently than what I envisioned. I understand that there is always a chance with crowd funding that my funding goal and the amount of money raised through crowd funding may be different than my vision. I also know that there is also a chance that what I ask for I will receive and or more. In both these instances there is something for me to learn. Some risks are the ultimate declaration of betting on me. This Kickstarter for "Chronicles of My Inner Child" is a true declaration of betting on me, betting on my inner child. Here I am everyone, potential perceived risk from a statistical and or logical point of view, yet I am planting seeds to bring one of my childhood dreams into abundant fruition!
