MEET THE VISIONARY
Trenell lives by the motto, "I needed a hero so I became one," which encapsulates her personal journey of resilience and advocacy for survivors of childhood trauma. As a woman of God and a superhero mother to her son, Trenell draws on her experiences of homelessness, abuse, and poverty to empower women and girls around the world.
Through her spiritual journey, Trenell has realized that her story is not unique and that many women and girls have experienced similar trauma. This realization motivates her to guide others on their healing journeys and to be a voice for survivors.
Trenell's personal experience with child sexual abuse led her to establish I Am Beautiful Because, an organization dedicated to educating and ministering to survivors of childhood trauma. She is passionate about bringing healing to others and is a strong advocate for children in her community.
Trenell is trauma informed certified and has earned a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from Morgan State University, and a Master's degree in Jurisprudence in Child Law and Policy from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law. As the CEO, she relentlessly, continues to be a beacon of hope for survivors of childhood trauma.
