Lydia's story

I grew up in a house where my father was an addict and alcoholic who would beat on my mother on a regular basis. We were poor and survived on welfare. I remember growing up and receiving everyone's used clothes and toys. I never saw a future for myself. I just went with the flow. School is what saved me. It was a safe place that taught me there were endless possibilities and I could be anything I wanted to be. It wasn't until I had my children I realized I wanted more than just to survive. I wanted to leave a legacy for my children and build an empire for them. I wanted them to have a better childhood and to know love. The healthy kind of love. I always wanted to own my own business but wasn't confident enough to try. That is until my children came alone. I stepped out in faith and here I am today showing them anything is possible. All you have to do is try and never give up.
