Q: A big part of self empowerment is overcoming the circumstances we are born into, and the challenges that life puts on our path. You had more obstacles to navigate than many people. (Can you share a little about your childhood… how and what encouraged you?)
A: When I think back to my childhood, I remember good times, lots of them. I Also remember terrifying times of fear and hopelessness. At the age of ten, my Mother had to share the reason my Father was absent from the home days or months at a time. She had to explain why Christmas gifts would go missing within a week of unwrapping them under the tree or birthdays being left with unfulfilled promises.
