Thanks y’all for the opportunity to be part of such a great cause!! God bless our #veterans for all they’ve sacrificed! 🙏❤️🇺🇸
I spent 11 years active duty in the Army as a Military Police officer. I also served on special duty for 6 out of the 11 years with military bands singing all over the world. I got out in 2009, to take care of my children and was soon after diagnosed with PTSD from MST that occurred in Korea in 1999. My assailant harrassed me for years. He is currently in prison for unrelated charges.
I went to school and raised my children while I sought treatment, and was able to obtain my Associate's degree and eventually my barber licenese and 2 years ago I completed my Bachelor's degree in Multimedia Journalism.
I have worked with radio, television, and the music industry, trying to promote myself as an artist, but my responsibility is always to my children. I currently am a substitute teacher, a barber, work at a restaurant, and use my music career to support our family. I am married and my husband just experienced a very big career change, which makes it difficult to promote my music career. I have a new album and am signed to a label in Nashville and have a full band, which I book, promote and manage on my own.
My children are both athletes and very creative. We all work hard. Our goal is to have a house of our own because we have lived in a 2 bedroom apartment for several years while I completed my education and recorded my first album.
Music is my savior, and what brought me back to life. It is the one thing that never gave up on me, and always gave me confidence.
Music is also how I began to reach other victims of sexual trauma. I am now able to speak about it without shame in front of large groups.
Since having Melina , I’ve been a huge fan of weekly book store trips.
As I write this post , I couldn’t be more grateful for her in my life and what she teaches me about laughter, love and compassion.
Not to mention I get to be a kid again. If you are a dad, don’t forget to truly spend time with your kids, we only have one moment , then in the blink of our eye they will be grown up and gone ❤️
