Hi, I’m Heaven! You can call me Heavie!

Welcome to HeavieTalk Blog.

Buckle up your seatbelt as we dive into discussions about mental health, self care, social impact, politics, sports and anything else newsworthy… all from the perspective of a young black woman navigating through college life, adulthood, and a spiritual journey.

What is HeavieTalk?

HeavieTalk is a person.

HeavieTalk is a brand. Peace, positivity and truth with (tools or) fuel to live freely is the mission.

HeavieTalk is a safe platform. Blog posts and podcasts curated by me to empower you to challenge status quo.

Using the tools I have, I will make a difference. My way of making of difference is advocating for social change by using my voice & power.

All about the blog..

HeavieTalk is not your typical blog.

I want to start conversations that aren’t being had and further others, using both facts and opinions.
