I was born in Brasilia, Brazil I was born with the worst form of cleft-palate cleft lip, a portion of my nose and lip was missing and I endured 25 years worth of reconstructive facial surgeries to normalize my facial features. When I was a year old I went to Canada as a baby. I endured child abuse as a child and was removed from my parents and put in multiple group homes from the ages of 11 until 17 years old. When I was 17 years old I signed myself out of being a crown ward which is the equivalent of being a ward of the state. When I signed myself out I raised myself on the streets in Canada. I was a 17 year old prostitute, stripper, escort and lived a horrible lifestyle of all kinds of sin. I was an alcoholic who was a friend to all the drug dealers but I never did drugs and never had the desire to. When I was 19 I found that I was pregnant so I started to go to the same church as the producer BOI1da who produced Drake. At that time that church was called Church without Limits. I found God I found true Life. Then when I was 24 I met someone online who was affiliated with a major label who said they would help me get signed. For about a year we skyped, emailed, etc. One year before coming to the United States I had my last and final facial surgery of normalizing my facial features. Myself and my then 6 year old son left Canada and ended up in Los Angeles, California in March of 2013 and endured the horrors of Human Trafficking for 8 months until my now ex-husband rescued us. Although rescued I ended up endured 3 years of hell with severe domestic violence. I ended up having 2 babies back to back by my now ex-husband in 2014 and 2015 and unfortunately because I was to weak to leave my now ex-husband I lost my 3 beautiful sons permanently. After losing my children and leaving my ex-husband I regained my strength to go back to do making music. I wrote this song "Street Love" to represent abused women everywhere. I will honour my oldest son whom I came out to the United States with and make it in this industry so that he knows that we did not come here in vain.
