Who/ What Inspires/ Influences Me the Most: My mom (RIP) and my grandmother are my main sources of inspiration because I watched them both go through so much and they are the strongest people I have known. And I guess I could say music in general just because it has been the most steady thing in my life that has made me happy, given me hope, and encouraged me to do whatever it is that I needed to do.

Best Advice I’ve Ever Gotten: To always be myself no matter what… My mom instilled that in me and as simple as it is, it has been the best thing I have ever done. I even have the tattoo “To thine own self be true” dedicated to that…

I Started Blogging Because… I have a passion for music and everything artsy & creative… I also love to write and talk to people about those passions. Why not start a blog and really get my thoughts out there to share and find people like myself who feel the same way. It seems like a win-win to me 🙂

Why Music? From dancing in front of the TV and singing in my car seat as a 2-3 year old to listening to music after a rough day of school, work, or life in general, music has always been a part of my life. Having to deal with a lot from a very early age, music has been my refuge, my THERAPY. It still is. But music gives me a feeling that I don’t get from anything else. It’s indescribable but I love it…

Why Muzik Junqie? For someone like myself who has also been nervous and anxious most of my life, Music was something that always helped to calm me. I’ve tried medicine but nothing was long-term. So, Music became a “pain killer” for me. It’s my go to when nothing else seems to work.We all have that one thing that takes us away from the stress in our lives. Music is mine…

WELCOME TO MY FAVORITE ADDICTION & ENJOY THE THERAPY SESSION!
