In my spoken-word piece, "Lion Diva Rises," I share my vivid, raw experience. I'm 1 Lion Diva battling, surviving, and living through this evolving life with a sidekick, lupus. 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 and motivating others on their life paths.

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