I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Zakiyyah Walker, PersonaI Revolution Coach and Legacy Strategist, regarding trauma being encoded in our DNA, "strong black woman" syndrome, and how growing up with a mother involved in toxic relationships altered the course of her life resulting in multiple suicide attempts.
Zakkiyah has survived, is thriving and due to that her mission is to help black women get crystal clear on what they really desire, the habits that are keeping them stagnant and the steps to create the life they want --ON PURPOSE. She is committed to helping Black women remove their "crown of thorns" and heal from societal, generational and, ancestral trauma through strategic life-changing actions.
