Be the Change You Wish to See

Sasha says she was unable to continue to stay with her family due to disagreements that they had. “My mother passed away four years ago and I didn’t have family that was willing to open their doors. I had no other place to go,” she said. With her options and resources depleted, Sasha decided to seek help at a women’s shelter, which eventually lead her to Susan’s Place.

Maxine came to Susan’s Place after having struggles at home. She says Susan’s Place has helped her by teaching her patience. “I was used to going from 0 to 1,000 and end up fighting someone. Now I am here, learning to have patience and cope with the here and now,” she said. 
This is me–very unique.
She believes beauty is knowing yourself well enough to deal with your insecurities and uncertainties. “We all have insecurities and beauty is learning how to cope with it.” Remaining confident and having faith is a code that she lives by. Maxine refuses to use negative terms when setting goals for herself, “I don’t like to use the terms ‘can’t’ and ‘fail.’” Her positivity embodies who she is as a person; she defines herself as “unique.”
