ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Milwaukee native Yvonne Coleman is inspired to reach out to young women and girls locally and nationally to show them that it is possible to fall in love with yourself by working through difficult experiences while integrating DBT and CBT practices. A graduate of Alverno College, Yvonne Coleman earned her degree in Women and Gendered Studies with a double support in Psychology and Religious Studies.
Devoted to understanding leadership in her community, she developed a passion to become an advocate for young women and girls in the mental health field. In addition to being active on campus, Yvonne also ran a student group for the major and was apart of a panel that discussed the representation of women in social media, in our community and also politically. After completing her Master's Degree in Cultural Foundations of Community Engagement, Yvonne plans to continue to educate young women and girls, while promoting positive emotional health.
In today's society, as women we often times allow what we see influence what and who we are. On "autopilot," we forget to practice self-love, self-care, we forget what it is like to have fun, sometimes we even forget who we are; we lose ourselves in our day to day life routine, surviving instead of living. #shehaspurpose will serve as an encouraging platform that will promote self-love, positive affirmations, virtual networking events, research that has been shared to educate women about mental and emotional health, supported by real-life experiences.
