Celebrating THREE Years of Truth from a Teen

Wow. On this very day, 3 years ago – I began a journey. I had no idea where it would lead me, the people it would guide me to meet, the path it would create for my soul to tread. All I began with was a passion. A passion to aspire to inspire. The past three years of TFAT - Truth From a Teen have been… well, something quite incredible. I’m incapable of describing the impact this experience, this website, has had on me. From April 2010 to April 2013 – I’ve made an attempt to prove a disparity to the negative narrative of those of my religion and age, I’ve received awards, recognition, criticism, love, page views (just crossed 72k today!)- but MOST importantly – I’ve received your endless support. I’m constantly humbled and honored.

There have been days where I have felt the desire to give up on this dream, but I’m constantly reminded of my responsibility and the faith people have so graciously instilled in me. I write this post with sadness in my heart as it marks an important but bittersweet milestone. Today not only marks TFAT’s 3rd Anniversary – but its FINAL. It is time to move on. It is time to move forward. The journey continues. The passion is stronger than ever. And the mission is still alive. I ask you all to join me in ushering the next era in my mission of aspiration and inspiration. In the next few weeks, my website will transform from Truth from a Teen to another name, but the goal remains the same. Thank you all so much for all you have done for me. Much love.

It’s been real, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store.
