Pretty much everything I have ever wanted in life I made happen. I became a world champion boxer. I signed with Don King and Bob Arum. I joined the @wbcboxing family late in the game, but I did it at the age of 40. I married the man of my dreams @kristoffstjohn We had 2 beautiful kids, Julian & Paris. The only thing I couldn’t manifest was bringing my son back to life, but I haven’t stopped trying because that’s the fighter in me. I never give up. I have a daughter that makes me laugh everyday. She makes fun of my flaws, but she’s REAL and I know she loves every part of me, from my stretch marks to my cellulite. I have the most amazing boyfriend @drlaurencerifkindds that accepts me and all of my grief, the unbearable grief of losing my son. A sadness he knows I will never recover from, but chooses to stay anyway. I am grateful for my students at the shelter @stepuponsecond and @_danielsplace they give me life, a reason to wake up in the morning. I am grateful for attorney @markgeragos not only for fighting for my son, but for always having my back. I’m not perfect, so far from it. But I am so fcking determined, I will never give up because like my mother always said, I was born a fighter 🙌🏽🕊
