I’m Afia Fields. Actress, poet, motivational speaker and BURN SURVIVOR!
I was burned in a house fire in Baltimore, MD in 1993. Age 3years old. I have been surviving almost 24years. Over 50 surgeries, losing limbs, hair , memories and facing hell back and forth. I have been through it all. Burn Scars from head to toe. Hard times ? Of course! Giving up? Yes, I thought about it…but that wouldn’t make me a SURVIVOR. I use my story to inspire and teach others. Awareness is what we all need. My campaign ” DIVERSITYISBETTER ” is to encourage ALL human beings that being unique ,different and bringing change is nothing to be afraid, shy or ashamed of. Tragedy is to be bring triumph. DIVERSITYISBETTER enhances diversity & lowers opinions. Strengthens&Inspire all ages&races at truly being you&being Dope at it (laugh). Enjoy life it was saved for a REASON. Join the campaign and let’s bring awareness! I have a spoken word segment on BET.com – What’s At Stake by Afia Fields ( Link – http://www.bet.com/video/new
