About Yv. Etaghene

Hello love face. <3 So much of the time we go through heartbreaking situations and don't even know how to process what happened, let alone what to learn from it and how to grow from it. Life happened in ways I never expected--my heart was ripped out of my chest after the death of my parents and various other heartaches. I literally did not know how to keep living. Through years of healing, tears, soul searching and prayer, I realized that a huge part of my work on this planet is to share what I've learned from immense heartbreaks with those around me. Through art. Through videos. Through my words. To catalyze and inspire you to your own healing and a deeper sense of who you are and your purpose. I created this space to share with you for this purpose. Below is a bit about me, what I do and what I love. Come join the family, boo.

Let's heal together.
