Should All Animals Be Treated Equal?


Animals share this planet with us. Some humans believe that non-human lives aren’t as important as our lives. Animals aren’t human so they are just a part of matter taken up unnecessary space right? Of course not. Others might feel the only exception is pets (cats, dogs, ferrets, exotic birds, rabbits, select rodents, etc). I’m here to kinda break that belief system for ya.

All lives are important. All animals should be treated equally and with the same respect as pets. This is deep and more people should think outside the box when it comes to all life forms on this planet. Here’s a story. By the way, I’m about to tell you a story that happened earlier today. This morning, me and my son Jordan were headed home from the grocery store. We were walking toward our apartment when we heard this loud screeching noise. I thought it was probably the lawn guys with their equipment, but as we came closer, it wasn’t a machine. It was a helpless Great-Tailed Grackle. We looked and just thought it was doing one of the mating calls, but that wasn’t the case. Plus it’s February and I don’t remember them being so bold in winter months. Have you ever seen a grackle flare up and do his dance to impress his female companion? We have many times! It’s pretty entertaining. This little guy was there with another Grackle who was walking after him. His legs were a bit weird and with a cry like that, we could tell he was in some serious pain. When we saw him, we just stopped. There are drivers who come through the complex and he was in the middle of the street. I didn’t want this bird to be a victim of a careless driver who simply felt this bird’s life didn’t matter.

The Great-Tailed Grackle in our complex.

Jordan and I went in our home, dropped the groceries, grabbed a shoe box if we needed it and came running back out. Jordan was ahead of me and was able to get close pretty close to the Grackle. The second bird left and could be seen in the tree right above where we were standing. The bird didn’t budge while Jordan was standing next to him. The bird was no longer yelling in pain, but had a limp. Someone came and tried to touch the bird with it’s shoe to see if he could scare the bird away. I asked him not to touch the bird with his shoe. Then this man was like, “let nature take its course.” He was basically saying, if it was dying, let it die. He left and that was that. Me and Jordan stayed with him for about 7 minutes. I know very little about birds, but if one was in situation like this fella, I would definitely help if I could.

This Grackle let us get really close. He wasn’t afraid and stared at the both of us the entire time. One thing I can say about birds is that they will trust you if you give them a reason to trust you. Me and my sons had a memorable experience with a pigeon who was after the left over chips my sons dropped on the ground a few months ago. Birds are intelligent in their own way :).

To end this story, eventually, the bird started to fluff up his feathers. He limped and moved his feet a little. I would think to see if he was okay. He then spread his wings and flew off slowly.  We both were relieved, because the last thing we both wanted to do was later see this bird’s guts smashed into the ground. I believe fate takes its place. I also believe we shouldn’t just ignore another non-human, non pet life as if it’s unimportant. We both went back in our home feeling better about the situation.

Within the past 2 years, we have rescued 2 dogs and 1 kitten.

My question to you is this. Should all animals be treated equal?

National School Choice Week & Why It Matter

It’s the end of National School Choice Week. For one whole week, most schools celebrate school spirit, fund raising and other events to help their schools. Here in Las Vegas, we celebrated with performances, and felt great about the schools we CHOSE for our youth. For most families around the country, its the other way around. This week was exciting for both parents and students, because it’s personal. We all made a choice to pick the school that is best for our families.

More Performances for National School Choice Week

National School Choice Week is celebrated, because parents and students made the choice to be different. There was an auditorium full of Charter schools, Private schools and Homeschoolers celebrating their choice to be different. We celebrated taking charge of our family and doing what is best for us.

My sons after the Assembly @ UNLV

This is a big deal, because most people are used to doing what they are told to do. We were told to put our children in the school the state and district said was best. We had to put our children in schools based on address. 

“Teachers felt being the President of our “beloved” country was the highest achievement in one’s life.”

In middle School, I grew up on the south side of Chicago. To be specific, 75th and Halsted. If you’re familiar with that area and/or grew up in the 90’s, it was the last place you would want to live. If you had children and wanted more for your family, you would have ran for you all lives! Yes, it was that bad. We’ve witnessed the after effects of drive by shootings, ran from gang members, experienced bullying, constant fighting, etc. As a parent on a mission, I made it my duty to focus on my kid’s needs. 

They needed me active in their education and a strong school system that cared about their present and future. This is what encouraged me to seek better options. Since the beginning of my sons’ education, they have attended charter & magnet schools. They have also been Gifted and Talented students since they were young enough to be tested. My sons have also held honor roll for most of their education.

What encouraged me to make this decision was paying close attention to the school politics and favoritism. Nowadays, most teachers are proud collecting a paycheck from a job like many others who work in Corporate America. Teachers felt becoming the President of our “beloved” country was the highest achievement in one’s life. This is pure b.s. When teachers would degrade students, because their way of teaching wasn’t working for the students. Yes, I’m being honest. My oldest son, Jordan was in 3rd grade when a Texas Teacher (black woman) told him he would never be a leader nor amount to anything in life. My son came home in tears and confused. Her behavior changed his outlook on life at such a young age. He no longer wanted to strive for success in the classroom. I teach my sons to be a leaders and make a difference in this world. This was when I began to seek alternatives. We’ve also experienced teachers comparing their grandchildren to their students. In second grade, my youngest, Jovan was the top student in his class. In his teacher’s eyes, he wasn’t good enough. He was a perfectionist so it counted against him. He was bullied and was treated horribly in just 2nd grade. As you can see, we’ve had our fair share of the school systems.

As a parent, I made a choice. That choice was to find a better education solution for my sons. It was to put family first. I chose to work around our lives versus work our lives into everything else. 

“Our children grow up too fast and pick up behavior habits too quickly for us to be absent from their lives.” @missnishabee

This is the second year my sons have been attending Nevada Connections Academy. It wasn’t easy adjusting from a brick and mortar school to a virtual school setting. However, we stuck through it and it has been rewarding for our family. My sons have a great relationship with their teachers. I have built relationships with their teachers as well. We enjoy the field trips, live lessons, and extra curricular  activities. We have the freedom to work at our own pace & have access to the best education they ever had.

As we’re in the end of the week, remember this. We all have a choice. The school is not a babysitter nor should the school be scolded for not meeting your family’s needs. No matter what your current situation is, your children deserve the best start in life. Never forget you have a choice. I used to be so angry and frustrated with the schools. I later learned that when you know better, you do better.

Why You Should Eat Little To No Corn & Soy Products

Soy and corn are very popular and used for many food products, but they aren’t as safe as some may believe. Here are reasons why I eat little to no corn and soy products.

Corn used to be my favorite veggie! It’s huge, bright yellow, really sweet and I loved it! I rarely ever eat corn, because it’s a GMO. I was beyond disappointed to know my love, the corn on the cob wasn’t real anymore. It is grown with harmful pesticides that can damage our bodies. Corn wasn’t naturally gigantic in size. This indicates growth hormones have been used for a long time. It’s sweet, because of added sugars. Synthetic sugar isn’t recognized in the body. Sugar stores fat in the body. These were more than enough reasons to let go of my corn.

Soy on the other hand is a man made invention just like many other foods, animals, and so forth. When I gave up dairy milk four years ago, I started to drink soy milk. I met a lady  who warned me about drinking soy and how it affects the female body. Soy has added estrogen which comes from certain plants. From my research, the resources have made claims that it doesn’t harm women. I personally decided not to take that chance anymore. There’s so much that throws our hormones off balance that I refused to take a gamble with soy. Soy is also known to have been present in certain paint products. Some also have made claims that soy is strong enough to change someone’s sexual orientation. I stopped eating tofu, I changed my buttery spreads to soy free and no longer use soy sauce. I read just about every label on my products before I make purchases, because I’m aware of my temple and treat it special.

If you’ve wondered about these two “foods” I hope this information is helpful to you.


2 Natural Sweeteners You’ll Love

textgram_1502232859[1]It’s hard to find a natural sweetener that taste good, dissolves easily, healthy and doesn’t have a horrible after taste. There are so many so called alternative ‘sweeteners’ on the market that promise they are the best. Yeah right! I’m here to tell you about 2 natural sweeteners that doesn’t need help to be delicious! They are safe to use as much as you like, naturally created by Mother nature itself and can be used in countless ways! How do I know this? I’ve been using these 2 ingredients since I’ve started my meatless journey close to a year ago! I use them for like everything sweet!

What’s the first natural sweetener that has nothing to do with the addictive sugar cane or its deadly alternatives?



Agave Nectar is the best of the best of the best when it comes to a sugar substitute! In my home, we substitute it for everything! We use it on…

Pancakes and waffles, steel oats & grits, tea, coffee, sweet sauces, lemonade, etc. We use Agave in everything! I no longer by syrup, sugar or anything that isn’t going to benefit our heath.

The 2nd natural sweetener is ORGANIC DRIED DATES!


Dates are so delicious and are great to add sweetness to desserts, smoothies, ice cream, oatmeal or whatever else you like sweet! Unlike Agave Nectar, dates look similar to prunes. They also have a huge seed right in the center that can’t be chewed or swallowed. After removing the seeds from this fruit, it can be chopped up and added to whatever you like! It can also be shredded in a blender. I love to add this to our home made banana ice cream, and home made smoothies! This fruit is so sweet and actually has a nutty flavor. If you haven’t tried this natural fruit, you must give it a try!

So why would I recommend these two foods over everything for sweetness? These two are still natural! Most of our foods aren’t food. They cause harm our temples unlike foods that are grown and prepared in their natural state.



Why I Love My Hair :)


As a child, I was raised that hair can either make or break a woman. In other words, our hair is everything. There’s no in between, it’s literally EVERYTHING! Later in life, I found that these beliefs are misconceptions and sets women up for failure. That might sound weird coming from someone who chose a beauty career right? While I still enjoy making others beautiful, my mission has always been beauty from within.  Another fact I realized was how insecure, arrogant or stuck up some women are over this illusion. This has made me become more aware of who I want the world to see over what society wants to see.

So why I love my wild, sometimes tamed, weave and naturally curly hair?

Hair is how I express myself. It’s not perfect, but gives a perception of who I want to be. I can be pretty bold, straight to the point and my hair helps me get my point across.

I love the versatility I have with my hair! It’s long one day, short the next, shaved off, or any other way. I don’t have just one set look and that’s what makes me who I AM!

When I learned my true hair type, I’ve learned to embrace it! When I stopped relaxing my hair and actually say that my hair wasn’t as nappy as I thought it was, I became appreciative of the natural beauty I possess!

Do you love you natural hair no matter how it is? I’d love to hear from you!


Question Everything – Your Life Is Precious

textgram_1497747987Physical death is something we never want to experience, but its a fact we face sooner or later in this life. Premature death seems to keep rising here in the USA. This made me put self education first and grow closer to understanding this life outside of our “man made” society. To dig deeper into natural remedies and live a healthier lifestyle.

According to the Washington Post, the third leading cause of death in the U.S. is medical errors. In this country, we’ve been trained to trust our medical professionals knowing that they have our best interest (our precious, price less life) at hand. Its sad and gets under my skin to hear how people die, because their trusted doctor issued the wrong prescription or didn’t diagnose their patients properly. No one should ever have to make funeral arrangements for this kind of premature death. These situations are preventable.

Why aren’t doctors getting time in prison when these careless events take place? How can we help ourselves when we face health challenges?

Here’s what I’ve learned since I’ve become more aware.

When you visit your doctor, ask questions and make sure they are answered properly. Nowadays, its easy to spend 2 hours in an office for a doctor visit just to see the doctor for a total of 5 minutes. In the past, I’ve had to slow my doctor down more than once to ask questions and get my questions answered thoroughly. Why is this? I’m not saying all doctors are like this, but these people exists. They are paid very much and spend very little time with their patients. Make sure your doctor is listening and care for you. If your provider can’t deliver, find one who will.

Natural remedies are saving lives! The less you’re at the doctor, the less money they make. So there had to be a way for you to always come back right? Its called marketing! If you’re healthy, they are broke. If you’re unhealthy, everyone is happy except you and your family :(. So do you continue to go with the waves that are falling off the cliff to their death or do you go against those waves to save your life?

Electric Herbs offers natural healing. Our creator knew how to keep us well. It’s with electric foods! Herbs, vegetables and fruits in their natural state builds longevity in the human body. The cure is/was never in man made chemicals. We were brain washed to believe this horrible delusion. There’s herbs that can improve our bodies interally and externally with no hesitation. Become best friends with the real God created food! There are so many guides on natural herbs and healing. Not sure where to start? Contact me.

When eating right and taking care of the body, it naturally repairs itself. Studies have proven that in time, we have a brand new body on the inside. Yes we age, but the body was never created to break down so easily. It breaks down from foreign substances we insert that causes our temple to act differently. It stores fat, gets diseased and then die before its time. Love yourself and question everything.
