Teen Mom to CEO, Book Project

$1,261 of $3,119 goal

Raised by 19 people in 32 months
Growing up in rural Pennsylvania I didn't know I had many choices. My family was a lower middle class family and while they did the best they could, my childhood was not every little girls dream. 

Imagine this, you are 16 years old, you stayed home from school, sick in bed, you hear the phone ring. Minutes later your mom walks in to share with you that she knows why you are sick. "That was the doctor and, you're pregnant." Again, not anyones way to begin a day. 

Much of my life I didnt' feel accepted and this was no exception. Yet looking back, I wouldn't have it any other way. I've gained so much from the horrible circumstances I've come through. They've been difficult, yet have lead to many sucessess for me personally and professionally. 

This book project has been on my heart for years. I am finally ready to share the raw truth about how anyone, yes, even you, can work through your circumstances and find every success in the world. 
What's more, I have a heart and passion for teen moms and women who have experienced domestic violence and/or sexual abuse. Thus, I've decided that I don't want to recieve a single penny for this book. Rather, I will be donating 100% of the proceeds to charitable organizations, that truly empower young girls and women to be the best they can, with many options to make better choices.  The first reciepient of the funds from the book for the first year will go to Florence Crittenton Highschool. 

Regardless of your circumstances, you can rise above and live the life of your dreams.  Thank you for taking the time to be part of this impactful project that will change the lives of many people!
