To the most important and ambitious woman in my life, coming from Barbados at 18, without her parents and all alone to achieve her dreams! My biggest inspiration, your drive is crazy, when you want it you WILL get it and your optimism about everything brightens my life. To the woman who accepts me for all my crazy and vulgarity and pushes me even when I don’t push myself. To the woman who has loved me unconditionally for the past 22 years of my life without a doubt. You make me so proud to be called your daughter. Im actually about to start ugly crying so I’m going to wrap this up lol, but a big Happy Birthday to my beautiful momma, Giselle Justine Reich!! 💞💞💞
