Peace be upon you!

Even though I don’t have a photo (for religious reasons), it has been delightful writing people like we’ve radio personalities with a lot of depth.

I’m in prison because of a mental illness induced by a car accident that went undiagnosed and untreated resulting in severe harm to myself and my late fiancé. While incarcerated I converted to Islam, then began to rectify my life. I came close to death, but lived to overcome my demons and I hope to inspire others to do the same.

My current routine is working as clerk, contributing articles to my unit’s newspaper and taking self-help classes. Some of my goals include: establishing healthy habits, studying the Quran, becoming trilingual (English, Spanish and Arabic), gaining artistic skills (hand-lettering, water-coloring) and developing my writing career.

Some of my favorites are:
Author: Toni Morrison
Artist: Daft Punk
TV Show: Grey’s Anatomy
Movie: Glass
Game: Tetris

To mature is a necessity to develop genuine relationships in which I can ride with someone through ups and downs. My intention is to connect with three types of people: those local in Arizona so I can re-enter the community with healthy allies, those who are goal-oriented so we can hold each other accountable to our aims, and those who want to be vulnerable and put themselves out there so they can truly be known.

I look forward to hearing from you! Remember this: Choose to live life and not just do the time.
