I used to have my credentials here, but I decided that instead I want to tell you more about the real me.

I grew up in a low income neighborhood in Houston, TX. My father had two jobs and my mother also worked. My mother treated me like a step child and would physically and emotionally abuse me. By the time I was 16, I was already in front of a judge for fighting, living on my own and that year I would also attempt to commit suicide.

After a miracle saved my life, I thought I would try to save myself. Unfortunately, I experienced another tragedy. I was raped brutally in a motel you pay for by the hour. The guy threw water all over me and left me outside. I had no idea what to do. I went home and immediately showered. My friend made me do a rape kit, but it was too late. I washed away the evidence and the police advised against pressing charges. The doctors gave me a million pills to prevent me from getting STDs. I hated myself. I kept it to myself. I threw up all the time, but I never said anything.

Instead, I kept pushing through. I was a survivor. I lived for a reason, so I kept pressing on. I graduated from the University of Houston with my International Business degree and moved to Miami to pursue International Law. Unfortunately, that was also a disaster. Years later I found out that it was due to my trauma that I would freak out every time I would take the LSAT. I took up bartending and became a child again. I laughed, I played and discovered I was the ultimate networker. It was that discovery that lead me to Public Relations.

Although, life still had more darkness in my future. I was violated by my mother’s husband. He was touching me and wouldn’t stop. I froze! Luckily, before he could rape me, I snapped out of it and ran. I was terrified for my life. I lost everything and a friend took me in. We lived in Section 8 housing in Palm Beach and ate 30 cent canned beans. That is where I began reading everything I could from the Bible to the Law of Attraction to so many different types of psychology books. I watched anything that would encourage me and uplift me.

Claude Bristol says, “It is the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief, and once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” Claude Bristol

For two years I repeated over and over that one day I would be flying private jet, working with the President of the United states, working with Donald Trump and having dinner with royalty. Within five years, I fulfilled them all.

Life is but a dream when we choose to believe in ourselves and our ability to prosper beyond our wildest dreams.
