What’s up!

I guess this is the part where I introduce myself, huh? I’m Aniyah – mother, author, and your average (but extraordinary) woman trying to figure this thing called life out.

I’ve had my fair share of disappointing relationships – from family, romantic, to platonic. But up until a few years ago, my most disappointing relationship was the one I had with myself. In the past, I allowed the way others viewed me & treated me to define and dictate how I viewed & treated myself. 

I’m passionate about mental health and helping people grow. Not only do I have a personal interest in mental health because of my history of depression & anxiety, I have a professional interest in it as well, majoring in Psychology and Counseling Psychology.

Creating a healthier mindset and developing a loving relationship with yourself is important to me for many reasons – the main one is because I want to set a positive example for my ten year old daughter, Kamiya. It’s important to me that the generational curses that run in our family ends with her.

You’re important to me too! Which is why I created this site. I want to share my journey and the lessons I have learned along the way so that it can help you grow, glow and give yourself the love/life you’ve always dreamed of.

Okay, so now that we got that out the way, let’s really get to know each other. If we are going to be great friends and all, here are some things to know…
