Ideas mentioned by Kierra to cope with anxiety:
« People think that you have to be unstable and crazy to go to therapy but life is hard. It is ok to want to talk, to want to care for yourself. Truth is, sometimes your friend and your family may not be able to help or may guide you in the wrong direction.
« I wanted other mothers of color to understand that there were not alone in their journey. I wanted them to come together and learn form each other.
My goal was to bring women from different walk of my life yet dealing with similar situations together, to make them feel more connected and less lonely on their journey. »
