Brenda Myers-Powell was just a child when she was pushed into becoming a prostitute in the early 1970s. She describes her experiences and how she was pulled into working on the streets and why three decades later she is now a devoted inspiration to the lives of other girls. Working to spread the word in hopes that other young women don’t fall into the same misfortunes as her, she has made it her business to inspire.
Some of you may find Brenda’s accounts upsetting.
Right from the start, Brenda felt that life was handing her lemons, but she always tried to make the best lemonade with the ones that she had.
Brenda grew up in the 1960s on the West Side of Chicago. Her mother passed at 16 when Brenda was only six months old. Never having the opportunity to learn what it was that her mother had passed away from, her grandmother who suffered a drinking problem never told her. The official explanation that she was given was “natural causes”.
She didn’t believe that. Who dies at 16-years-old from natural causes anyway?
