I am from a family that encountered disadvantages, challenges and failures in life which contributed enormously to my own share of challenges. However, borne from that came the passion to inspire, empower and enable even more people to LIVE LIFE, despite the challenges and failures they encounter. Now, I know and believe that every individual has the potential to be his or her best; if only they can have a sense of purpose, and successfully embrace constructive and positive norms, thought patterns, beliefs and values.
With persistence and perseverance anything is possible, and “the world can be your oyster”! A few years ago, the thought of being an “inspirational speaker, author, facilitator, coach and mentor” was far-fetched, as all I experienced was inner emptiness, with no sense of purpose or direction. This bothered me tremendously. I had to do something about it, and here I am today, LIVING LIFE PURPOSEFULLY. I have seen so many people giving up on their dreams due to the lack of inspiration, empowerment and know-how. They end up abandoning the much needed value they can add to this world.
My first book “My Jesus My Role Model” was published in 2012. The message I put forth is that we have the ability within ourselves to realize our inner strength and worthiness in so many ways. I continue using my real-life story to inspire individuals, teams or groups through storytelling. This led to the publication of my second book “The Persistent Black Girl” in 2014. The book continues the positive message of inspiring and giving hope to the hopeless. “The Persistent Discovery Workbook” was published in 2016. It is a much needed support tool for individuals to successfully embrace achieving norms, positive thought patterns, affirmative beliefs and clear values as they pursue their dreams.
I am the founder and visionary behind The Persistent Foundation, a Non-Profit-Organization, that empowers young people to better handle life despite the encountered challenges and disadvantages. One of our current projects is the filming of “The Persistent Black Girl” which we hope will provide opportunity for the inexperienced to enhance their skills as we continue making a difference.
