Welcome to the Unapologetic Tribe! I'm Abbey, the Founder of Live Without Apologies (LWA). I am a child of God, a daughter, sister, friend, Naija, a Mental Health Advocate, passionate public servant and so much more! I am an Unapologetic Coach by day and a Public Health Professional and Servant Leader at all times. I created LWA to disrupt the status quo and inspire YOU to live life unapologetically on YOUR terms without judgment or validation from others.
Live Without Apologies is more than a T-shirt brand. We are a lifestyle, education, storytelling and advocacy community that is working hard to encourage everyone to live life unapologetically; AND we are also super passionate about raising awareness about the mental health crisis globally!
I had the idea for Live Without Apologies for over five years, however perfection paralysis prevented me from acting on it. Everything changed in October 2020. I quit my dream job after battling depression, anxiety and feeling a lost sense of identity.
I realized I was operating from a warped definition of success, a constant state of seeking validation—making decisions based on what I perceived others wanted me to do.
Quitting was my freedom. When I quit, I was ashamed and I felt guilty, but I gave myself grace to step into the uncertainty of not knowing what came next. I was unemployed for four months.
That period of stillness, reflection and listening to God allowed me to rest, recenter and rediscover my own voice, passions and aspirations. With that said, Live Without Apologies was birthed!
