#27: Choosing to Breathing

I always knew, I wanted to be doing, exactly what I wanted to do. I’ve always been stubborn or as my parents always put it, “fussy,” that way. In elementary school I wanted to be a singer, more specifically I wanted to be Brandy. At 11 years old I remember sitting on my parents bed [...]

#20: My "say something!" moment at Planned Parenthood

It’s official… I am fertile again. On Wednesday I headed to Planned Parenthood (PP) with one goal… To get my IUD removed. [Read why here.

In India "Guest equals God"

To say traveling to India was LIFE CHANGING sounds dramatic, but that’s exactly how I feel.

5 Tips for Dating While on Vacation

When you’re single and travel as much as I do, dating while away does not seem like a choice, but a necessity. When I’m in NYC (home)—between work, family, and friends—it’s hard to give 100% to getting to know someone new. But when I’m away, “getting to know” everything about where I’m visiting is exactly [...]

PIMA Chronicles #12: Best Birth Control Ever!

Imagine. Its you’re first full day in Sierra Leone. You’re laying pool-side. Sun is all around you. Water is glistening in front of you.

Top 5 Records On Repeat In Sierra Leone

I just came back from spending 3 weeks in Sierra Leone for the holidays, and my feet have not recovered from all the dancing I did while I was there. One thing I LOVE about Sierra Leoneans (and most Africans in general) is we know how to have a good time! And I don’t care if [...]
