Media and broadcasting have always been a passion of mine, yet I never quite realized it until I did some self-reflection and soul searching. As I reflected on my life I began to see that I have always been pursuing a career in multi-media, or rather it has been looking for me. For example, I have had several poems published and one even transformed into a song. I've hosted successful radioshows; in point of fact, one show was translated in five languages.

There is an old adage that says "you know you're on the right road when the right neccessary people cross your path". I learned that when you follow your heart, inspired people will come into your life and help you achieve your goals. Though I struggled I was unmoved, and in fact I became more fixated on bringing my vision into fruition. Life's various obstacles have given me persistence, a positive attitude, and an inner knowing that nothing can impede my progress. It is this mindset that has propelled me towards achieving my vision, which is to touch lives and have a positive impact.
