Simene’ was raised by her mother with her two older brothers in a rural town called Conway, North Carolina. She was a seemingly good child but had her moments of mischievous behavior. She did well in school because she believed an education was her key to success; plus her “momma” didn’t play.
Along the way, she had some challenges that proved to be stumbling blocks to purpose. Friendships were tested, physical violations occurred, intimate partner violence took place all while trying to finish a bachelor’s degree that took her five years to complete. She happened to land a job as a teacher and there she discovered what she was called to do. Simene’ went on to obtain her Master’s Degree ten years later.
