Hi all! Thanks for coming by my blog!
My name is Daphney and I am a woman of Haitian Descent (Ayiti)! I am excited that you decided to embark on this journey with me.
I love GOD and am a woman strongly rooted in faith. I am a daughter, sister, friend and a scientist.
My journey throughout the STEM field has not always been an easy one. I used to often find myself conforming and shrinking myself to blend in. It took some inner work, but I am now boldly and unapologetically ME!
I'm inviting you all along, to go on this adventure with me. As I follow my goals, while growing and glowing along the way!
And oh! the slayage will be real also!!!
