Real life 'Rags to Riches' story.....an inspirational self-help autobiography from a girl who lived on the streets in New Orleans to having worked at the White House before she turned 30-years old. Tragedy turned into triumph, a very ugly mess became a beautiful message. Misfortune began when her parents divorced and a mother moved into a car with a 2-week old baby girl. Life was hard due to experiences no person should ever have to endure, but the hardships molded a resilient heart-of-gold individual. Those hardships are the ugly things society doesn't like to talk about, yet are real and happen every day. Things like abuse (in every regard), starvation, addiction, jealousy, isolation, bullying, death, poverty, a dysfunctional family, physical disabilities, etc., are stumbling blocks that usually anchor people into a life of darkness and destruction. Yet, this victor used those stumbling blocks and turned them into building blocks for a life people rarely dream of. The power of believing in yourself is a difference maker. Life will be what you make it. You only get one chance to make a significant difference, to live your best life with excellence, and to leave an impact in this world, by word and deed. When most people blame others for their poor life circumstances, hold onto anger and resentment, or settle with the situation, this girl wanted more and soared instead.
