I'm 1 Lion Diva battling, surviving, and living through this evolving thing called life with a sidekick, lupus. In my spoken-word piece, "Lion Diva Rises" I share my vivid raw experience. I walk with an invisible shield of empowerment ready to unleash it on this condition. By living a cause-driven existence I touch lives through my roar of advocacy using my voice, spreading positive motivational vibes, and encouraging people who are living with invisible conditions.

Here's an excerpt from my piece:
"My nerves are intense
as I look over my shoulder
watching a predator
follow me down the street
if I'll be attacked
