When I began writing this piece, I didn't know it was going to be a memoir. I thought I would just dip my toes into the sandy shores, but I soon found myself far out in the middle of the sea. Once I started writing, I just couldn't stop, and I never looked back. What I thought would be a short article about my experience as a black woman in the Pole Dance world, quickly unfolded into an abundantly rich memoir about my life. This memoir details my 7 year journey of nurturing my discipline and craft as a Pole Dancer, through my gifts as as a multi-faceted Artist, Filmmaker, and Creative Entrepreneur. This story also captures the depths of my journey as a woman who is healing intergenerational, sexual, and emotional wounds. Within these pages, I share some of the traumas I've faced in my most significant relationships, my enduring life path towards holistic wellness, and how I've stepped into my own light. It is my story of how—amidst the challenge of never quite finding a space where my whole self was embraced—I repeatedly chose to see my own gifts, and craft my own lane. This book contains some of the rawest and most powerful truth-tellings I have ever shared. I only hope that my heart reaches another heart.
