Hi, I’m Chérylène.
(But you can call me Cherry)
I do not judge you. Everyone has a reason behind their actions, even you.
I want you to understand others from their experience and even learn something from it too.
I have always wondered why people think a certain way or why they feel this way…
…This is what cherylene.co is all about.
Most of you might relate to a story and some of you might be the one telling your story.
Either way, I am here to help not only you but others to remind ourselves we are not alone in this journey.
I want to help you help yourself.
I’ll be helping you by sharing some tips on how to overcome some of the difficulties/obstacles you could go or are going through in life.
And with your permission, blog about your life-changing event that may help others.
I know what you might be thinking…
“Why would you want to open up to a stranger?”
Even if I don’t know you, I want you to get to know me.
Let me open up to you…
…When I was going through tough situations, I wish I had someone to guide me through them, maybe have someone for advice…
…OR even talk to someone I could relate to in some type of way.
I was born in France and for the first two years of my life, I lived at my grandparents’ place with my mum after my biological father abandoned me.
My granddad took over the father figure until my (step)dad came into the picture. At the age of 2, my parents decided to move to London where I was raised.
When I was in primary school, people used to point out that I was not light skinned like my siblings.
After hearing the same question over…
…And over again, my skin colour became my biggest insecurity. I felt different.
Sometimes I felt like I didn’t belong in my family.
This insecurity lasted for a very long time until I realised that skin doesn’t define you as a person or where you belong.
Now, it doesn’t matter to me that my family members are lighter than me.
I hope this brief story about my past eased you into trusting me a bit.
