HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE
I’m Brimo and this is my first time contributing to an online magazine and I’m ECSTATIC! As the oldest of 7 children, I’ve always been the second mama and a teacher. I tried to run away from my calling as the latter forever. I went to college believing that I was going to be a surgeon. But Chem 122 and Math 151 said, “Oh chick you thought!” After soul searching and taking a few sociology classes; I stopped fighting who I am in my core and decided to teach.
Education is my passion. Specifically, giving high quality education experiences to those who can’t always afford it. My role in education has changed as I’ve moved from teaching the children to teaching teachers. But, my ultimate goal is to do my part in closing the achievement gap.
Outside of my professional life, I am the new mom of a spunky and independent girl who is my entire world. Being a new mom has changed my life and this journey has been one heck of an eye opener. But who Brimo is doesn’t end at being a mom. I’m a dancer (twerk queen, just ask about me), crafty DIYer, trivia aficionado, corny storyteller, and baked goods taste tester.
What I aim to bring to #MMR is a quirky realistic angle on parenting from the new mom perspective. I don’t give advice, because clearly I’m just making this shit up as I go. However, if you need to feel that someone is going through the same stuff you’re going through; I GOT YOU!
I will also dabble in some pop culture and current events from time to time. I hope you all enjoy what I share. Just remember, I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my shit!
