This is a book of difficult conversations. As we grow, there are hard conversations we must have about who we are and who we aspire to become. This realization compelled me to give young women some real stories, from real women, with real life situations as blueprints for overcoming challenges that helped them become “purposeful women”. The contents of the book addresses issues of self-esteem, relationship abuse, sexuality, plus more and what your choices can mean for the short term and the long term. The goal of this book is for young women to see themselves in the stories of the authors. To draw in and connect with young women who may feel like they are the only ones who have endured their plights. In brief simple words, “you are not alone”.
