WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO REACH A GOAL?
Today we discuss "What it takes to Reach a Goal" with special guest Keirston Gaines. Keirston is an assistant principal at a local high school. She tells us how she overcame adversity and life changing events that occurred during 2015. These events pushed her towards her Purpose, giving her Faith and directions for her journey.
Why CHAMPION Kids
CHAMPION Kids was birthed from a desire to help all kids, but specifically “at-risk” teenage girls from the ages of 14-18. CHAMPION Kids strive to plant seeds in the lives of our youth and the generations to come by educating and providing resources that will take root in their lives. This will empower them to grow into individuals that are whole and complete; being all that God has called and created them to be.
At the age of 12, my mother lost her mother due to a brain aneurysm. Her father was a merchant seaman who battled alcoholism and due to his job, he was gone for months at a time. As a result, five kids (ages 14, 12, 10, 8, and 6) were often left alone to fend for themselves. To prevent any “red flags”, my mother ensured that everyone was fed and household chores were completed. While my mother and her brothers were never placed in child protective services or foster care, they were eventually separated and dispersed among family members.
