"I AM" is an Author-biographical Poetry collection partnered with explicit narratives, demonstrating insurmountable spiritual courage, bearing emotional and sometimes unpalatable but heartfelt experiences. Written to encourage and highlight the emotional healing of openly speaking up about painful experiences such as child molestation, sexual abuse and the loss of loved ones. Bringing light to the commonality in everyone who has been violated, facing fear, pain and loss of loved ones. This heartfelt journey lead to Amanda's innate, un-awakened faith and belief in God to defeat the hardships of her experiences, bringing her to a place of mental stability. Making it known to other victims, they are not alone and their dignity and freedom are theirs to take back through speaking up.
