“Here we are two years later after that DM and she is my real life #WCW. All honesty I feel like a total loser for ever sending her that DM because after really knowing Tomi it was never a question that she wasn’t going to stay true to herself, and never apologize for being right. Your strength and perseverance are an inspiration to me every day.”
