When you meet a famous Baseball player
Today I caught a tall white man staring intently at me. “What does he want?” I just wanted to drink my Frappuccino in peace, the one my amazing barista added sprinkles to because he knew I was having a crazy day. I notice all the ladies just waiting patiently for him; then around the corner…
No Matter How High the Mountain, it cannot Block the sun
I don’t know what struggle or hardship you are facing today. Maybe from where you are standing, it seems as though this season is never ending. You have come to the end of your ropes and all hope is fading. Do you even see light at the end of the tunnel anymore? Why are the…
Toxic places, toxic people
One of the biggest convictions we have is the tug a war relationship between being kind and distancing ourselves from people/places. Not just any, the toxic ones.

The man at the desk asked me if I speak Spanish; it’s usually the other way around in my experience where the patient’s family will ask ‘habla espanol?’. Obviously he took me for being ‘Hispanic’! No shock there. I politely responded, sí.…
The scars of cancer
There are no words to describe this kid, because words cannot do justice… the first time I met him, I was trying to help him stand; he said to me, “woah you are very short”! I laughed so hard and soon I got to know the most genuinely kind hearted young man and his amazing…
Change is inevitable
It was a great scholar that once said, “today is the reconfirmation of the inevitable”. From here, there is no turning back. Change is in fact inevitable. We long for it as much as we struggle with it; and why is that? Unsure of where life was leading, I decided to venture out amidst the fears that seem…
The Ninja Nurse’s new coworkers
