This guest is a recipient of a certificate of recognition by the California Legislature for her commitment, hard work and inspiration to the community. This certificate was issued on January 19, 2018.
Our guest has spent nearly half of her life in every female state prison in California. She also has accumulated more parole violations than regular Sunday newspaper deliveries for a year. There's more...her rap sheet tallies over 20 pages.
Yes, unfortunately, with a hardened drug addition, she was living on the streets of despair, but wait, a remarkable and incredible turn around.
Her childhood years did unearth a deeply rooted constructive trait of putting her whole heart into schoolwork. This played a big part in her persistent, unwavering climb towards her current state - despite living in 12 separate foster care homes. Please listen to this heart-felt, triumphant story.
Marjorie Strain, welcome to the show.
