I am Jude. I am a 51 year old African Nova Scotian from Truro, NS and I identify with the pronouns him/he. I was born and raised in a small Black community called ‘The Island’ and I have lived here most of my life. I am a husband, a father, a Papa and more. I have been actively volunteering all of my adult life as a coach, mentor and advocate for equity and social change. 

I have started this blog with the intention of introducing my thoughts, passions and inspiration to the world and to chronicle my journey to Break Free and Be Better.
