DENA, I AM SO GRATEFUL
I cannot express to you the depth of your Essential Woman™ class on my life, my being, and my direction. That class allowed me to explode my path to purposefulness, my journey to being who and what I was created to be: a powerful, grounded, connected woman forging the way to help others.
I went from a struggling, recovering, homeless addicted woman to a world renowned CNN hero and Soros Justice Fellow who is frequently featured on national TV and in magazines like the Los Angeles Times, People and Cosmopolitan. I am now the founder and executive director of an organization that has a $1.3 million budget and a $2 million in kind distribution center that helps others in the community.
I went from unemployable to an employer. I just cannot capture or convey the experience of the birthing that occurred from my work with you.
Since your class, I have helped over 650 women successfully transition from prison to the community along with 150 children and a book about my life is due out soon.
I cannot tell you how many people around the nation have contacted me, in awe of what I do as a result of my birthing in Essential Woman. We are fifteen years down the road and baby, I'm not through yet.
Susan Burton, CNN Top 10 Hero, Soros Justice Fellow, Founder and Executive Director of “A New Way of Life”
