    Beautiful Butterfly Welcomes Author of Forbidden Love Kendra Graves

    in Books

    On This Episode of The Beautiful Butterfly Show We Welcome Special Guest Author of "Forbidden Love"  Kendra Graves. This is Kendra's first time on the show, so we are Excited to hear about this new author and the great works she has and will provide to the listeners and readers! Enjoy! 


     About Author Kendra Graves- Born and raised in Hartford Ct, I am 29 years young and a mother to my first born, my heart, my daughter Khaniyah. I always had a passion for writing. It all started at the age of 10 when I found myself alone in my bedroom and would write raps. From there I branched off and started writing poems but I found it didn't work for me. I gave it a rest for a few years and started back reading and writing at 15. My teachers always told me I was gifted. In school I would ace my writing exams. In highschool I read many books but it never occurred to me to write my own. I kept a journal of stories that happened to me, but never told my story. I graduated from highschool in 2004 and went on to cosmetology school because doing hair was my second passion. Shortly after entering into the field I had to leave school because I couldn't work with the chemical because my skin was to sensitive. I didn't know what else to do with myself so for a few years I tried to find something that worked for me. In 2010 I told myself I'm going back to school but It was all put on hold because I couldn't go as an independent student at 24. Once I turned 25 I enrolled in Kaplan university where I studied criminal justice. I made the dean's list every semester and presidents list my final semester. I graduated with my Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice in 2013 with a 3.91 gpa. Still trying to find myself in the field of my study is where I fumbled upon writing again in October 2014.

    Butterfly Dreams welcomes Neasha Clarke

    in Self Help

    Tonight we welcome Inspirational Freelance Writer & Advocate, Neasha Clarke. Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio is a community outreach production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery.


    Ms. Clarke is an amazing survivor who is now involved with Innocence Revolution and inspirational writer. Assaulted by a stranger at around age 6, it instantly changed her world. Who would she tell? How could she possibly share this ugly attack with anyone? What would others think if only they knew what had really happened?


    Neasha went down the path of self destructive behaviors, being an over stimulated teen, and into the dangerous realm of abusive relationships. Today however, she uses her always incredible path of escape as a child, writing, to bring awareness and help to many others. 


    In understanding the lifelong stuggle of survivors we are able to determine the path of healing, empower our children today, and then begin to break the cycle of generational impact as we heal and become all that our children deserve.


    Please visit our website www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com to read Neasha's survivor story and many others. In no way should any of these programs be considered as a form of professional or therapeutic services. We are Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio, not just another abuse radio program. Thank you
