My Recovery Story

I'm a survivor of physical, emotional, sexual and financial abuses. I have overcome homelessness and abandonment. I am focused on moving forward by staying preset.

My Motivation To Help

Everything I have survived I have had to survive with minimal help if any. I always felt I was/ had to do things on my own. I don't want anyone to feel that way.
