Proud to announce a concept & a project I’ve been forming since sharing my testimony & battle w depression in June. Receiving so many positive messages & engaging in conversation with people I never thought I’d have the chance to has been a blessing due to the fact that I was able to speak out about my journey to those that needed to hear my story the most, my family 💙 Been a super dope experience so far just having my mind work overtime in regards to better life choices & decisions for my future now and further down the road. Growing up... i was brought up with the you had to be hard mentality to survive our circumstances, that it wasn’t ok to cry and you had to harden up, not talk about our problems but fight your way through every situation take the beating on the chin, brush it off and live to fight another day. In some ways it helped but internally it creases a different layer of vulnerability behind a mask of numb like torture. And I’m hoping to change this cycle, I’m happy to announce that alongside my partner in crime @teeno4thegram aka. Batman & Fred Ama that we’ll be hosting a mentoring programme for the boys at holy family school starting next term, although the final details are being ironed out, I’m happy this idea is coming to fruition 👏 It is so important to help change the mould of what was for our younger generation and to help them speak out... my focus being on our young males, reassuring them that it is ok to not be ok and that speaking out does not make you weak, it proves how human we are and the fact that their voices can be heard in the respect that we as educators, parents & family members can throw that life line and help them in any aspect of life where they are struggling to cope with more mentally than anything. Thankful for this opportunity & im hoping to influence some change where ever I can but the main goal is to help these young men & future leaders be comfortable in their own skin to reveal how they
Late post... but literally just finished letting the Occassion of what happened yesterday sink in & it’s all set in place in my mind & heart. There are so many things I want to say & have so many people to thank but there will never be enough words nor the fact that I don’t want to be a bad friend or family member by leaving anyone out. But I’ll try my best 🤗💯 yesterday I received a formal blessing by the whole school including the staff, seeing familiar faces smile at us as I, fellow teacher aids but most importantly our new students were covered in the praise and welcome of our new and amazing family... truly beautiful moment seeing my Aunty Tia attend & just how her journey has inspired me to treat life with a open mind & continue to be ourselves in times of hardship because those moments make the victory so much sweeter 💙 Thank you to everyone who’s been in my corner since day 1... the continuous support has been uplifting, esp my family and friends all love for real 💯 Big thank you to @teeno4thegram for this great opportunity, definitely following the lead of a woman who is determined to seek out greatness for our students and the betterment of the school, can’t wait to venture the rest of 2019 w you, our great class Room 3 & the village👏 Happy to be officially part of the staff & welcomed into the student body with open arms 🤗 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ you’ve been an honour so far... still can’t believe this is me now 😂 GOD IS GOOD 🤞🏾🙌 Welcome MR TANA 🧢 #foryounana#notjustadreamanymore#anythingispossible
Amazing what can happen in a year 💯 to formally be blessed by the kids & teachers of this amazing school tomorrow will definitely be one of my life’s highlights. I have already created a bond w these children in the hope that I make them smile, laugh but most of all happy whether it’s in the classroom or out in the playground... still so much to learn in this new venture but so far all my struggles & mishaps have been worth it landing me here in this position to give back to the community I love 💙 This is going to be one for the books 🥰 #everythinghappensforareason#yesitsmrtana#foryounana 💙
-I have exciting news!- . . . Starting Monday I will be in Medical Assistant school at @brooklineedu 🤗 As many of you know I have my Bachelors in Health Science and after attending Naturopathic Medical School for 1 year I realized my passion was pulling me elsewhere. I completed Aesthetics school and have been working at @bluestonetherapy1 for almost a year now. . . . After hiring our 2 amazing doctors/medical director @doktesarah and @dr.seanx ; I realized that I still want to be involved in the medical side of aesthetics and assisting them in the procedure rooms seeing patients is my hearts next step! . . . I appreciate in advance all your well wishes and support; and for following me on this journey! I will be attending morning classes so that I can still continue to see all of my amazing clients at the studio from 1-6pm!
This moment right here is dedicated and owed to everyone who has helped me capitalise on this great opportunity. Not a secret that the last 3 years has been a roller coaster & at times a nightmare but I couldn’t help but be genuinely and purely happy today walking in and just vibing with these kids who accepted me fully and put me on my toes w their questions had me sweating for a min 😂 very emotional and overwhelming afterwards just for me man after everything I have endured if you were to tell me last year I was going to be running PE/Fitness sessions at Holy Family to help push forward this dream I would’ve laughed and be on my way. But I know now that I made the right decision in taking this pathway seriously and honestly looking forward to what 2019 has in store for me w these group of great kids & this school as a whole. Thank you everyone for your constant messages and support never goes unnoticed I swear. God given opportunity & along side my partner in crime @teeno4thegram I know we’ll create something special 👏 ITS OFFICIAL I am part of the Holy Family team 🙌 #allglorytogod#straightupblessed#foryounana 💜 #dowhatyoulove#lovewhatyoudo
Decorated Nana's Christmas tree with the family! I feel like Nana is so happy right now. I love you all and I'm going to make the effort to be around more. Seeing Nevaeh play with all her cousins was so cute & it reminds me of how much I loved growing up with my cousins. Here's to a year full of more family, more memories! #nevaehfrancesmunoz#christmas#foryounana#love#family#memories#xmas2018
