My Story

Can an individual successfully navigate through an upbringing that is in conflict with society’s norm? That is the question that I will answer through my personal story of beating the odds.

Why help fund my video?

I was raised in a dysfunctional, poverty stricken household with two moms and nine siblings. The trauma┬áI experienced was intensified because it was during a time where my parent’s lifestyle was not accepted. However, I was able to make it through. This is not to say that I did not experience further challenges of being married, divorced and then becoming a single mom of three. It was in spite of these challenges and circumstances that today I am currently enrolled in a graduate program at a prestigious university. My name is Persephone and my story is one that should be told out of necessity. Will you be willing to help make an impact on many more individuals who are facing similar challenges in their lives? I need you to support my story to help other women.
