About Joy of Romeo
On December 16, 2011, the Friday of final exams' week, during my junior year of college; I gave birth to my son, Romeo. Instantaneously, life as I had previously known it changed. After discharge from the hospital, I began to pray. I began to ask God for guidance on what was the right path for me to take and I was presented with the right answer during that Christmas break. I decided to go back to school with my 3-week old son by my side with the goal of graduating on time with honors... our journey began!
Romeo being born exposed me to a new world; one of joy, laughter, and motivation! A world where it was no longer only about me, but more so about my life, my career, and most of all me raising this weird miniature human that had some of my awesome physical characteristics. Motherhood did not signal the end of life for me. I did not have to sacrifice my education, my career, or my social life; it actually enhanced all of them. With my journey of motherhood as inspiration, I decided to share my experiences with other young ambitious mothers, with hopes that this empowers and encourages others to not give up and instead have fun, stay focused, and enjoy the journey!
The Joy of Romeo was created as an environment where young, fearless, and career-driven mothers can find inspiration, comedy, ideas, and great tips on mastering the balance of motherhood, career, and self!
As of June 2018, Joy of Romeo is now focused on supporting individuals and working parents with the resources they need to succeed in career, self care, and parenting.
