Author Allysha Jones Hamber will be on joining us! Allysha is also the 1st Recipient of the Change Your Mind, Change Your Life Award!
At the age of sixteen, Allysha found herself living on the streets of St. Louis and eventually forced into teenage street life. Yet, Allysha managed to still get an education in the St. Louis Public School System. Graduating on the Dean’s Honor Roll from Brown Mackie College in Salina, KS with an Associate’s Degree in Information Technology, Allysha thought she was finally past the negative era in her life. At the age of twenty-six, Allysha found herself in custody in the Federal Prison System. It was inside the solitude of the institution, that Allysha began sharing her past of emotional, physical and sexual abuse with the women of the institution. It was her fellow inmates that both encouraged and inspired Allysha to share her testimony with the world through writing.
Ms. Hamber is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Missouri, St. Louis. Allysha has become a voice to abused women across the Metropolitan Area. She has appeared on St. Louis TV 10, featured in the St. Louis American along with several magazines and radio interviews. Allysha has begun a tour of several public speaking engagements at The St. Louis Public Library, St. Louis Job Corps, Department of Corrections, St. Louis Juvenile Justice Center, St. Louis Public Schools, Domestic Violence Shelters and Drug Rehabilitation Centers.
