My BRAVVE Story
First Things FIRST, let me tell you why I am BRAVVE- Bold Radical Authentic Vulnerable Victorious and EMPOWERED...
I really SHOULD NOT be here! Honestly, I should have been dead at least 7 times but God has other plans for me.
The Early Years ...
I was born with a birth defect called Spina Bifida. The doctor told my mother I would not walk and I wouldn't be able to speak well...
At the age of 6, I was put into foster care and adopted at 7. For 10 years I had no contact with my biological family. When I looked in the mirror my reflection confused me and I struggled to accept who was looking back at me. Was I the kid who spent 7 years with the family who allowed her to be taken away or the young woman being raised by strangers who tried their best to love her as their own? I just didn't know who I was or where I truly belonged.
By the time I reached 18, I left my adopted family so I was on my own and left to navigate this world alone because I made a choice to be with my "real" birth family. That backfired quickly and I found myself in a cycle of homelessness and desperate survival mode.
Ado-lessons (Not a typo, my young adult years were tough!)
Before the age of 20, I had lived in 10 different places and was a MESS! I had been raped, became chronically homeless and lost what was left of my self-esteem. Life was stupid so I tried to end mine.
I was broken, unstable and unsure of where my life was headed until God showed up, bringing the right people in my life to help steer me in the right direction

My story doesn't end there but on this page it does. Read the rest of my story here!
my braVve books
I've always had a desire to become an author. I was obsessed with stories as a child and I fell in love with the art of writing after reading "I know why the caged bird sings" by the amazing Dr. Maya Angelou. I independently published my first book in 2016 and have since published 4 more and counting. Writing books is a passion of mine and it allows me to share my story of hope, strength, faith and power to those that need it and teach others how to build a successful life by the power of their story.
