Tessa Shahid - Restarting Life
Tessa Shahid (Williams at the time of recording) has experienced trauma after trauma. From her Father having a major stroke when she was only 11 years old, through to her Mother having a different major illness when she was 18, Tessa learned what it was like to simply survive. Nursing both of her parents, becoming the main income earner and trying to get an education all at once proved to be too much. The three of them ended up living in a car, and struggling to get by. Tessa experienced sexual abuse, a miscarriage and many dark days which led into weeks, which led into years, and only just recently has Tessa learned how to restart life.
Today her approach is simple - to be grateful, courageous, and optimistic.
