Terri Lomax
My name is Terri Lomax and Iím a blogger, youth speaker and author. Iím sure I look pretty happy in the picture to the left, but my desire to empower women to achieve their goals and overcome low self-esteem, was birthed from a place of hurt and pain. I grew up in an abusive household where my mom was physically and verbally abusive. As a result, I developed a deep seated self-hatred that negatively affected every area of my life. Often times I walked around with a smile plastered on my face, but on the inside, I was in turmoil. It took almost 20 years for me to learn the value of self-love and to realize my worth as a human being, let alone a black woman.
