  4. I was once a lonely teenage mother who used writing to express her pain and emotions. One of my biggest dreams was to become a published writer, but I was always fearful that I didn’t have what it takes to get published. So happened I stumbled upon Tamika Newhouse article “From Teen Mom to Publisher and CEO” After reading her article, I felt that need to fight for my dreams. Tamika’s story truly inspired me. While reading her story I felt like I was reading a duplicate of my personal life experience the only difference was she was living my dream. Then I said to myself, if she could do it, why can’t I? Thank you Tamika for setting that example I’m now in the process of getting my first book published, you’re truly a woman of great purpose. Hearts off to you, you’re AMAZING!
