When did you move there? 6th grade

Where did you grow up? Newark and Montclair (I went to Glenfield!)

How do you make a living? I’m a counselor and life coach.

Coffee, tea or … ? Both! My grandmother is British so tea is a tradition on that side of the family. Puerto Rican coffee is a daily ritual too.
