“I like how she keeps pushing me to do things that I’m uncomfortable with. You’ve got to push yourself to the point which you can’t go any more, and I think a lot of that she’s brought into our relationship. She’s pushed me so much,” said Yonda.

The engagement comes after Yonda and Taz spent six years together. Taz opened up about the struggles that come with a relationship in a lengthy post. 

“The foundation of our relationship is based on friendship and remembering that in the midst of chaos has really helped remind us of the love we have for each other,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Something I’ve learned in the past 6 years is that nothing worth having comes easy. This relationship has taught me how to stick things out even through the roughest times and I’m so happy that we did because now our relationship is more refined and tastes better,” she continued.

“As a people we need to normalize speaking about struggles in relationships. Because believing that love is perfect is in itself a disadvantage. Love is imperfect but beautiful❤,” she added.
