Personal Statement:


My Goddess who invokes in me a sense of power and awe is Yemaya.  Yemayá rules over the lakes and seas. She also rules over maternity for she is the Mother of All. Her name, a shortened version of Yeyé Omo Eja is defined as  "Mother Whose Children are the Fish" to reflect the fact that her children are uncountable. All life began in the sea, the amneotic fluid inside the mother's womb is a form of sea where the embryo must transform and evolve through the form of a fish before becoming a human baby. In this way Yemayá displays herself as truly the mother of all. She, and the root of all the paths or manifestations, Olokun is the source of all riches which she freely gives to her little sister Oshún. She dresses herself in seven skirts of blue and white and like the seas and profound lakes she is deep and unknowable. In her path of Okutti she is the queen of witches carrying within her deep and dark secrets. Her number is seven for the seven seas, her colors are blue and white, and she is most often represented by drawings of fish, which represent her children.

For our community I would love to create a youth group called Conversations – a safe place for young people to speak their thoughts, hopes and fears.


My life mission is also my sacred intention to create a world that cherishes motherhood and the rite of passage known as labor.
