After surviving dating violence and sexual assault as a teen, Shereka Littlejohn Dunston's world was rocked when she lost a close family member to domestic violence in her mid-twenties. Shereka then picked up the pieces of her life to transform her pain into purpose by becoming a domestic violence and sexual assault prevention educator and advocate. Then the unthinkable happened: Shereka experienced a miscarriage that left her depressed and defeated. Despite the heart-wrenching pain, Shereka continued to pursue her passion. She was blessed with her beautiful rainbow baby almost two years to the exact day of her angel returning to heaven. Immediately following the birth of her son, Shereka's life almost came to a tragic end on the operating table. She fought hard in the spirit to survive, and now she is once again at a place to turn her unspeakable pain into purpose. Shereka believes that her job here on earth is to empower other people to live their purpose by overcoming their painful pasts.
