Please see below for my Monthly Update – November 2020 edition.
- When I received a Silver Award on reddit! I guess I have improved slightly vs. my “All About Bananas” days.

I have done some good work in the month of November, but I can always do better. I feel that I still have plenty of room to grow. My priority is to work on growing my online presence, so my voice can be heard more. There is still a long way ahead, but with hard work and dedication, I will have something to show.
Thank you so much for all the people that have supported and inspired me. I am incredibly grateful.
I look forward to a fabulous December!
