FROM A THORNY BUSH, BLOOMS A ROSE
The world refuses to see a childhood drawing colored in shame. So we read stories of happily ever-afters and paint rainbows of vibrant colors. We find ways to cope and carry-on. Monica did her best to paint the right picture. However, in her formative years, Monica’s abuser controlled her self worth and she lived in a constant loop of resentment, anger, and isolation. A dark cycle creating barriers to the woman she was intended to be. Monica was uncertain how to cope and navigate unhealthy relationships, impaired family dynamics, and her own shattered confidence. In this powerful talk, Monica shares her story and provides us insight on how we, too, can forgive, rebuild our confidence, cultivate healthy relationships and live life as a woman of purpose.
Monica is an executive HR manager, photographer, creator of a new podcast, She is You and the founder of Us Love We, a motherhood lifestyle brand that champions moms through their purpose in motherhood by capturing the moments that matter and sharing the journey.
