Grey Is The New Pink: Meet La Bella K

💭MOOD: Accepting 😏

🎧NOW PLAYING: Championships - Meek Mill🏆

My name is Kyme, known to the world as La Bella K. I'm from the Bronx but for the last 10 years, I've been living in the Pocono section of PA. Although I've spent the past 10 years living in PA I've always traveled back and forth to the city and maintained relationships with my friends and family. In November 2019, I was sentenced to 30 months in Federal prison for conspiracy to distribute heroin, powder cocaine and crack cocaine. I wanted to start a blog to share my experiences in here and on the outside that led up to this point. I also wanted to share lessons I've learned and the blessings from God I've still received throughout this situation.I want to help other women avoid being in similar situations but also encourage the ones who have made mistakes similar to me. Being incarcerated has definitely been an experience for me. Anyone that knows me, knows that I spend the majority of my time with my family and children. It was a crazy transition to go from putting my kids to sleep every night to barely being able to see them. This has without a doubt been the hardest part of my bid. I'm the type of person who knows what I want and how I want it so not having complete control over certain situations is something I've had to learn to overcome. Having to deal with the many personalities in here has been another challenge for me. As I mentioned before, I spend most of my time with my family. But the few friends I do have; I've known forever so I'm normally only around personalities I'm used to dealing with. The majority of females are extremely mixxy and chatty but I'm neither so I definitely had to get used to the catty vibes in here. I've learned that sometimes you'll have the most in common with the person you'd least expect to. I've even found myself talking to people I didn't even initially like. When you're in prison, sometimes it feels like people forget about you. It's like a "out of sight", "out of mind" type of thing but I've learned not everybody is just forgetting about you. I now know what it's like to be on the outside and inside of these walls. Life still goes on. Not everyone knows how to deal with your situation. Unlike state prisons, in the Feds you can't receive packages. This means I have to cash out on everything I have in here. People don't understand the pressure of that when you're not able to make your own money but you can't expect everyone to understand something they haven't experienced. This journey has been a challenging but rewarding one with nothing but blessings and insight from God. I look forward to you guys joining me on the rest of my journey.
