This is Monique Calderon, the sister of my dear best friend Natalie.
Monique’s ted talk is about finding your worth & value. The physical, emotional, & verbal abuse from her childhood added to her fiery hatred towards men until it grew into an all out inferno. Her residual hurts from the past & her strong desire to escape led her to the sex industry. She used her body as a form of currency to get whatever she wanted. She now has the honor of helping others see their value & feel loved.
I hope you can take a few minutes out of your day to listen to her moving story about finding self worth.
Personally, I could not stop crying because of the combination of knowing their family past, & how relatable her topic was in my season of life.
