Description
Brittany Cooley has a story to tell. And honestly... it's really messed up. When Brittany graduated with her Bachelor's Degree in Social Work, she was committed to changing the world one case at a time. Her own life experiences touched by severe mental illness, childhood homelessness, and a horrific attempted suicide were the fuel for her desire to make a significant impact with others who struggle through similar childhood trauma. Yet only a few years later, she experienced a total life transformation by finding the power in sharing her story of tragedy to triumph. She was inspired to begin an online business helping others be unapologetically themselves in their brands and in their business. This autobiography is written as a narrative, so you will be engrossed in the characters and the stories. Never before has Brittany shared her life story in this much detail. But you should know that this tale is 100% true, no holds barred account of the childhood of Brittany Cooley. What happened to her in those five years she was alone with her mother in Florida? What was her breaking point that made her attempt to take her own life? And how was she able to overcome such pain to become the magical, fun loving, optimistic, uncensored unicorn she is today?
