Passion

I am very passionate with Speaking out against Domestic Abuse and helping educate young people for what they are prepared to do next. I want to help them understand different types of relationships and what can be beneficial or not. I am driven for greatness and for others to achieve the same goal.
I was young and thought that I knew it all and how I misinterpreted people, my situations, and the word of God. Misinterpreting things are easily done especially when it is coming strongly from your insecurities. My passion runs deep for this.

Best Story

I remember when I was about to graduate the University and they needed a speaker. Me, thinking that they would not choose me because I have never been a choice to do big things like this. When I got the email that my paper was chosen to present for the class of 2017, I was ecstatic for the opportunity, but also shocked that they picked me. My G.P.A was 3.65 and I still had 9 credits to finish so no I did not know they would pick me. I was astonished.

I presented a speech in front of thousands of people, and I was not nervous. This speech showed me I was right where I belonged and not to think so little of myself like I always did in the past. You can be anything and achieve anything that you want if it is God's will. My speech was titled "Never Give UP" So this was a great but interesting story for me. This also gave me more of a boost and encouragement to speak more.

Origin Story

I made a way to get out of my abusive marriage to escape the trauma because I knew my kids were being affected and I was doing more harm to them than good. Once I got out not just for them, but myself, I decided to write an autobiography of my life to share with the world. I knew the things I went through was a testimony to help someone else get through or leave their situations. I wanted to stand out against domestic trauma, and I have did just that.
