Anyone who knows me, knows I have been looking forward to my 30th since I was 15.
Between then and now my life has taken turns and trotted on bumpy paths that have at times feeling me worse of for wear. At the age of 29 I find myself at a climatic part of the journey where I return to my marked road headed for my Personal Legend. I have loved, I have given birth to the creator of my joy and I have left a painful relationship all in the hopes of giving myself and my son the life we deserve.
While considering 30 and all that it entails, I wondered if asking for the usual would even add the value my ego thinks it needs. Instead I remembered the community of humans who had helped me get my son home. How they carried my tears and sent their hearts to me in an attempt to help me overcome a legal hurdle.
Now I would like to dedicate my 30th birthday to him. My universe.
My mother has always stressed the importance of education and at a young age I became a lover of knowledge and the intellectual, creative companions it brought me. Raised by a single parent. She did all that she could to ensure we reached our goals through the foundation she could afford for us. I watched her take out loans to ensure I became a Fashion graduate and to her I owe my success.
Now it is my turn to pave the way for my son. My wish; to raise money for my sons education. I believe he deserves the chance to thrive in any place he finds himself to be understood and so I ask for your help in making that dream realised. While I battle the legal end of our past, help me build his future.
