Hello, my name is Raina . I've always been very independent most of my life . I am a single mother and felt it was more important to have time for my son so that was the biggest reason why I work for myself . He lives in Atlanta now and goes to Georgia State I am very proud . In 2000 I started my holistic health studies. I graduated in 2007 only because I studied so many different methods of healing. I have so much knowledge but didn't have the confidence at that time. Not really taking on the challenging cases. But in 2013 my mother was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver . And she was begging me to help her . I work for myself so I no longer had money coming in because I was devoting so much time to my mother's care. I guess I went to school to save my mom's life. I can't believe how well she's doing now after 5years in and out the hospital . And no one to help me . What turn her around was she finally committing to a vegan lifestyle .It has been hard to maintain things and now I'm down to my last piece of Hope. I lost my own home and had to move in with my parents. And due to their health conditions I had to put them in a assisted living home. The only place I have to live is there home that I grew up in now. My father gave me their home but it has already went through the foreclosure process. I have Only 2 months to come up with the money to buy it back from the bank. I feel blessed to have such a low amount to pay. But at the same time I've been having trouble getting the money. So now I'm getting pretty nervous. I'm such a positive person that it seems like the people around me don't really believe that I need their help. Which really hurts me because I have devoted so much of my personal time to helping all of them. But I know God said you never give to receive. But in the process of me giving I lost everything, but thank God my son did receive a blessing from all of this. I didn't want him to struggle with me so I had him move with his father. His father lives in a really upscale neighborhoods which created my son going to a awesome High School. They prepare him for college and also got him a lot of free grant money for college . I live in Detroit that does not happen in our high school . I like to focus on my blessings because that will always keeps me smile . I've always worked for myself , the owner of B&B Squeaky Clean cleaning service . I have been modeling part time since the age of 20. Which I do just for fun. And the reason why I transitioned to real estate is because I was a assistant to several business owners in the city of Detroit for a number of years. And yes in 2008 they froze most of the real estate in Detroit they wouldn't issue in any mortgages in Detroit. And to this day a lot insurance companies won't even cover properties in Detroit. Now I'm just focusing on my herbal business. Through the years I have always done too much charity work. I love helping people so if someone doesn't have any money A lot of times I'll still help them. This is a practice I'm working to received more balance so that I can be well taken care of a well myself . All I need is a little push to get back on track. I am back working now my future is looking pretty good. Now that I don't have to care for my mom . I know in my heart I'll never stop helping people. So now I just asked God to leave the right people to me. And that prayer has been working lately I haven't had anybody trying to get free healthcare from me. I thank you for your time . And please know that I am real and I am a good person. And I have faith that my prayers will be answered today.
