Like every story, the road leading Myisha to her successes was one of trials and tribulations. For years, she struggled with an undiagnosed mental illness dating back to her adolescent years, a life of domestic violence, and low self-esteem.
When it rained it, it poured and in the lives of many a picture takes form; the ideology of suicide was the thing that seemed clearer than all other things.
“My life didn’t matter, I felt like suicide was my only choice,” Myisha said. “I knew someone else would be able to care for my children better than I could.”

Myisha is proof that even when the odds are stacked against you, you can win decisively.
