Rising Above: Aretha Taylor's Journey of Resilience and Empowerment.

Who said life would be easy? From being abused to being misunderstood, Aretha Taylor's life journey was not always a walk in the park. We all have our own stories to tell and some stories are harder to hear. Aretha's story is one of resilience, bravery, and the power of the human spirit.

At the beginning of her life's journey, her experience of being verbally, emotionally, physically, and sexually abused led to a spiral of uncontrollable circumstances. The pain and hurt within her household were overbearing, and she needed to break free from that.

When Aretha found herself pregnant at a young age and then homeless, she felt as if the world stood still. She felt alone, and afraid but yet determined. She was determined to escape a living nightmare and plant herself in a safe, happy environment. Aretha's number one priority at the time when she was most vulnerable was her daughter, but bouncing from couch to couch was not going to add stability for her or her child. She knew that there had to be a way to gain peace and she was willing to do whatever it took to get there.

Aretha Taylor's life journey brought her from a place of struggle, sadness, and depression to a place of ministering to others and using her voice to help those who were broken and needed a listening ear. Today her contribution to society is heavily influenced by her unwavering determination to make a positive impact, her empathy towards others, and her relentless pursuit of compassion and understanding.

It's an organization that is dedicated to empowering and elevating women's rights and their voices.
