From Growing Pains to Found Promise
Education propelled her to success.
But old wounds run deep...
Ever since she was a child, Jada White was told that education is the key to success. To freedom. To happiness. So, she found purpose and a life direction at college, studying the very subject that connected with her the most; and as she acquired multiple degrees, life started to open up for her.
Now navigating her twenties as best she can, Jada has a thriving career as an educator amongst the hustle and bustle of New York City. But despite throwing herself enthusiastically into jobs, relationships and travel, Jada finds herself continually betrayed, alone, and far from the happiness she always dreamed success would bring.
Dragged along by her work ethic and fueled by her yearnings, Jada fails to acknowledge the traumas of her past - traumas that are rearing their ugly heads as cycles of abandonment and abuse.
As Jada is hurled from one heart-wrenching situation to the next, the peace and happiness she so desperately wants always seems just out of reach.
Can Jada face her shadows and realize that emotional freedom is hers for the taking? Or have her scars altered the course of her life forever?
