I Wanna See You BE BRAVE

Honestly, I could not explain why the line “I wanna see you be brave” keeps my tears rolling like non-stop.

Women are expected to be everything

Just last night, a breakdown happened. It was something that has not happened in a long time for me.

Storytelling

I can vividly remember the day I got fascinated with stories. I was 4 or 5 years old when I insisted to sit-in at my siblings kindergarten class.

Mom’s Clubs

My work as a researcher opens a whole lot of world for me. I get to learn and a little bit understand that not everything on the news and the internet are correct and that culture immersion and its impact varies from person to person.  Today, I got the opportunity to search for Mom’s Clubs in theContinue reading “Mom’s Clubs”

Unconditional it is

My daughter has GDD; in simple terms, she is way behind her development in more than 2 levels. It has been a struggle for me to explain that, even to my own family.
