Lavora McCool was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in Joliet, Illinois, until she moved away to further her career choices in her late twenties. Her career includes being both a nurse and an author, and she has dreams of becoming the first nurse practitioner in her family. Her main objective for writing this book was to fulfill her purpose in life and to be able to use her platform to minister to the youth. Readers should be interested in her unique voice. She made sacrifices in order to be able to make an intimate connection in which readers would be able to feel the dialogue emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.
The book aims to take the reader on an emotional rollercoaster, just as many people go through in real life. The author’s desire is to inform and uplift communities with a story that plants seeds of healing, inspiration, and encouragement in the wake of many traumatic events. The first thing that comes to mind when suffering from oppression is often suicide; the author has found another way out and wants to share how she became victorious. She hopes to be a leader for many generations to come.
