By Supporting "In BOLD Rebirth" my memoir, you will be transforming the lives of millions of womyn, communities and organizations globally. Little girls will be liberated, filled with awakened voices creating unrecognizable futures and falling deeply in love with themselves.
Title: In BOLD Rebirth, is a groundbreaking book that will use multiple writing style's to take you through a journey of a Latina Dominican lesbian story of self love and healing with the seasons and the liberation she finds in each transition. Drawing from over a decade of healing from trauma, Dayanara Marte, creates a manifesto of possibility towards a BOLD Rebirth of her identity. She will reveal how her commitment to transformation eradicates a life long cycle of inter generational violence in her life. At the age of 15, 1991, Dayanara gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. In 2007 she had no choice but to embarked on a journey of finding her own mother for as she raised her daughter she realized that her own relationship with her two mother's and the incompletion, resentments, fear and anger she carried shaped how she showed up as a mother, partner, daughter and friend. In the process of discovering her own her-story she finally learns what it really means to be a healer and be healed, to love and be loved. In this journey of seasons changing Dayanara share's the deepest personal stories of her life. Her candid vulnerability shows the courage it takes to love anyway!
