The Story of Valencia Griffin-Wallace
What is your purpose is in life?
My purpose in life is to empower and change the lives women and young girls. Through my writing and speaking, I get to do this. Since my life literally took me from the street (being in a gang) to the sidewalk to the subdivision, I can relate to all socioeconomic statuses. Women need to learn how to find the strength in them, love themselves enough to want a better life and create strategic goals. First, I did those things for me and now I teach women how to do that for themselves.
