I am Toni, I am a writer, photographer, poet, & creator of arts! I have enjoyed arts since I was a adolescent. My passion started with drawing and poetry. As I became older, I fell in love with writing & photography. I started writing in a journal about my everyday life. Writing has always been my escape from my reality. The Pearl Blog was inspired by trauma, life’s ups & down, & my journey to healing. My goal is to help others go from hurting to healing. We all fall, but that does not mean we have to stay down. Never let your life temporary circumstances hold you back. Learn, grow, & experience everyday as if it was your last. Thanks for visiting!
