I’m Lukina Burks. It is a pleasure that you have stopped by to get to know me a little better. I am a writer of poetry and veterinarian that encourages families to thrive together. My goal is to bring together the human-animal bond while also bringing awareness to young girls that grew up in difficult settings as myself.

Being an orphan in the foster care system at times made me feel that no one cared to relate or understand the difficulties embarked upon me.  Adversity has brought me to different outlets like writing, sports, and leadership talks. I was given a scholarship for track and field in college and from there I continued to run into people that encouraged me to take that next step.

I realized I wanted to be a veterinarian one day as a child out on the street with no food, coat, or shelter. A stray dog walked pass me looking desperately for help. At that moment I realized he was looking for the same thing I was; a home, with food, and shelter. He just wanted that love from a family and to be taken care of despite his unfortunate events.

I am hopeful that you will find this page self-motivating to do things you have always wanted to do. I want to encourage children, teenagers, and adults to find outlets to cope with the adversities of life. Combining writing and health to bring forth the best you.

I encourage you to comment on all post that you feel brings something to you!!!
