Special thanks to the people who made me who I am.

State Rep. Dr. Alma A. Allen

I interned with you during your freshman year in office while I was in my second year of law school and have loved you every day since. I was more than your student. I became family. Thank you for your love.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis

It was your Texas Legislative Internship Program that gave me the opportunity to work for Dr. Allen her fresman year in office. It was you in your proud black success walking the halls of Worthing High School that gave me hope. Thank you for your support.

Dr. Iyanla Vanzant, who endorsed my first book! Your books got me through law school, and your advice made me the woman I am today. Who thought you would endorse my first book! Thank you for teaching me how to let go…

I am because you are.
