I am a native of Nashville, Tennessee. I grew up in state's custody through Davidson County from 3 years of age until I was 15 years old. Life was scary and uncertain many days. Understanding who I was and why I was in this situation ws even harder. This lead to a whirlwind adult life for me feeling as if I had no voice, no say so in the things happening around me. My kindness was taken for weakness. Manipulated because I wanted to fit in. Self Esteem was no where to be found. As my relationship with God matured so did I. I realized, physical, mental and emotional freedom was in my hands now.
