Tell us about your life before the venture/ leading up to your venture?

Before venturing into my business, Empowered Radiance, I underwent a transformative journey. In 2013, I experienced a divorce that left me feeling profoundly depressed, lost, and confused. I struggled to navigate life’s challenges and found myself working two jobs in an attempt to regain stability, only to sink deeper into despair.

In 2016, I made the decision to relocate to another state and move in with my parents. However, even in this new environment, I found myself isolated, dwelling in a dark room, grappling with existential questions. I pondered where I had erred as a daughter, mother, and wife, overwhelmed by feelings of guilt.

It was during one of these solitary moments that I had a breakthrough. I penned a letter to my inner child, seeking forgiveness and understanding. I realized that to move forward, I needed to confront the root of my pain. By granting forgiveness to those who had hurt me and releasing myself from the burdens of shame and guilt, I began to heal.

I reassured my inner child that she was safe, no longer needing to hide from the world. This act of self-compassion marked the beginning of my journey towards self-discovery and empowerment. I embarked on a path of self-care, incorporating regular exercise into my routine to alleviate my depression.

With each passing day, I cultivated a newfound sense of confidence and self-acceptance. I embraced my identity as a woman, unapologetically owning every aspect of myself, including my struggle with alopecia. In a bold move, I shed my wig and shaved my head, symbolizing my liberation from societal expectations and embracing my authentic self.

This profound transformation instilled in me the courage to share my story with others. Through Empowered Radiance, I aim to inspire and support women on their journey towards self-love and empowerment, drawing from my own experiences of resilience and growth.
