// I play the GIRL.

​Her name is Aisha.
​     Hafsa, sometimes.
​She is  fierce.
She is grounded.
​​She knows.
​     More than you think she knows.
​She is on the run.
​A refugee.
​Surviving. Fighting. Negotiating.
​Her terror tremors her bones.
​But, don’t underestimate her will.
​She, is the GIRL

BIO

I AM A WRITER.​

You know, speaking the forbidden truth.

Grew up here:
​Detroit.

Live here:
​City that never sleeps.

I have over half a million Delta airline miles sitting in my account.
Ready for me to just jump on a plane.
Best exploration.
Argentina. Buenos Aires.

I MEAN… come on!
​Artists all over the city,
​In their bohemian vibes.

Argentinian energy…
Roaring soccer games,
​The sensual rhythm of tango,
Sends waves through the Latin consciousness.
The south of Argentina…  Patagonia.
Perito Moreno Glacier.
Mindblowing.

Writer

Would you tell the forbidden truth if it was the key to your liberation?

SCAR is about redemption.
Self-love. Real self-love.
You can’t bullshit the soul.
I learned that.
It’s about intuition.
That funny gut feeling I got. That one day.  Everyday.
The question is will you dare to listen?
To that funny gut feeling. You know…  Instinct.
It’s about undeniable fearlessness.
But when you meet her. Death.
When you shake her hand,
And renegotiate your divine agreement.​​
​Fearlessness get’s easier. ​
