Who am I?

Hi Guys! My name is Philadelphia Crawford, also known as Philadelphia Cadette, but you can call me Dely. I was born in Odessa, Ukraine and raised in Dominica, the Nature Isle of the Caribbean in an interracial family. I am a wife, sister, and daughter with a BSc in Psychology and a MS in Community and International Development. I  am passionate about story telling and listening to stories of the varying journeys women travel on, especially when trauma is involved. I believe in community and creating a safe space for women, children and men to experience growth and become the best versions of themselves possible.

Why Simply Delz?

Well, Delz is a nickname that some of my family members call me. Simply Delz is a space I have created to invite you — yes you! — to grow and evolve and discover with me. I believe we should all have the ability to be safe when growing into who we truly are meant to be, and sometimes this process can feel lonesome. This space is to assure you that I am on this journey too, and though at times it is frustrating to move through growing pains, it is easier when you got a friend. So come with me, and let’s do this thing called life together. You will be able to learn from my mistakes, laugh at my corny jokes, enjoy the fun stuff, ponder the epiphanies and smile at the successes, all while being able to share yours, and either offer your own advice or solicit mine. It’s simple, it’s safe, and it’s community.
