My mom gave me the gift of Sign Language which I now use to be of service to the community to empower the deaf and hearing worlds with Unity and Awareness."

May revealed that she gave birth to a "beautiful daughter" in South Africa and she's in love with an Afrikaans man, whom she dubbed a caring and considerate companion.

"I love my country and #ImStaying may we all experience this Oneness and Love that my grandparents left behind as a legacy after making headlines in apartheid news.. They had a vision and their vision and passion for love and family came to pass in the SA we see today. I Love You brothers and Sisters of South Africa."
