This is my

story.

Hey y’all! My name is Amanda, and I am no longer playing the role of a victim. For 17 years, I worshiped a drug/alcohol addiction and blamed all my problems on everyone else. I have done the rehab thing and I have been arrested 4 times, including a felony charge. So many people called me worthless. No one believed in me. Even my own daughter did not want to live with me. One day I woke up and decided I had to make a change and get my life back! I packed up my car and moved from Mississippi to Florida with only $200 in my pocket, no place to live, no job lined up, but a burning desire to live a better life. I had no idea the challenges I would face on my journey to sobriety. I think when you decide to become a good person, life will test you and test you some more to see how serious you truly are. I experienced a car repossession and homelessness during my first year of sobriety. But during those trials, I learned some necessary life lessons and just how strong I really am under pressure. Now, I live a joyful, vibrant! I have a successful career, I am a published author, a student leader at Penn State World Campus, and most importantly I have a thriving relationship with my daughter! My hopes and prayers are, by being super transparent with my life, someone can relate and know that they have what it takes to make a courageous change in their life as well! I know one thing, Lil Babies, if I can do this…. SO CAN YOU!

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful” -Eric Thomas
