My sisters and I ended up in foster care and we bounced around between homes. I was a young rebel, I ran away a lot and ended up going to juvie because there wasn’t a lot of placement within the tribe.
When talking about her mom, she admits that:
I don’t talk about her & I’m doing my best to learn forgiveness on this level.
By the time she was 19 years old, she moved out on her own, found a tiny studio apartment and worked 2 jobs, six days a week.
