Hello. Come right in and make yourself at home here at my blog, saltfish & Lace. Although my birth name is Rochelle, I often go by the name Faizah Tabasamu (It has a special meaning).
Let not the face fool you. I am a thirty-something woman just working on bringing my talents and dreams to life, helping others, crafting a life that is simple, purpose-driven and natural and working on my relationships, especially the one with God Almighty. I live in St. Martin, south side and am an educator at a local high school.
I've worn my hair natural near forever, except for six years in my life and have big chopped three times. For me, natural hair has never been a journey, a finding out of things I did not know before. For me, natural hair is one of my canvases, like being petite; this is what I was given to work with. It is something I must put energy into so it can thrive, not suffer. It should not frustrate me or cause me to self-destruct. Some may not see it this way, but for those who do I happily share my passion with you.
I am a published poet, recovering procrastinator, and absolutely love a good story. I've often struggled with anxiety, fear and depression, and now I can easily throw them over my shoulder and keep stepping. They hamper my creative process and I want none of that.
I love St. Martin! I enjoy taking note of its quiet and resilient aspects of culture and history like vintage houses, powerfully beautiful trees (flamboyant) and the creative achievements of its people.
