It is never too late to empower a change in order to make a difference when needed, as I take a leap of faith towards a new chapter in my life, I wish to engage with someone who can relate in being unappreciated and taken for granted. Though I’m in this current state, I refuse to settle for less. All I have to offer is my honesty, loyalty, friendship and genuine love.

Hey people! If you’re reading my bio, then my looks alone caught your eye. Just know, there’s a lot more to me than that.

Before I begin introducing myself, first I want to apologize for having to meet under these circumstances. Unfortunately, I made a mistake awhile back that I'm not too proud of and it cost me my freedom. However, I hope it doesn't discourage anyone from allowing me to define myself, because I believe mistakes don't define people, people do. Although I'm far from perfect, I could admit I do...
