Meet The Visionary
The seed for I Am Beautiful Because... derived from CEO’s personal experience with child sexual abuse (CSA). At the age of nine, Trenell was violated by a perpetrator who she was fond of. Going untreated, she found herself making destructive decisions and building unhealthy relationships that were not lead to healthy adulthood outcomes. Later in life, she recognized the impact of her abuse as it began to show up in all aspects of her adulthood. This awareness led her to seek treatment for her own healing and ignited a passion for educating and ministering to women and girls who too have fallen victim of childhood sexual abuse. Her goal is to bring forth healing to survivors of emotional trauma.
“I needed a hero so I became one,” is the motto that she lives by. Through her spiritual journey Trenell discovered that her story was parallel to so many other women and girls. In understanding this, she is often reminded that she has a gift that is waiting to be delivered to the hands of another survivor. This of which is her greatest motivation and therefore she continues to reach and provide guidance for women and girls who are survivor of sexual trauma.
Trenell is a woman of God first and a superhero mother to one son. Born and partially raised in the District of Columbia, Trenell developed a resilience to her childhood traumas. Despite her shortcomings she was able to overcome adversity having survived through multiple episodes of homelessness, abuse, and poverty. Instead of falling victim to statistical outcomes she decided that she would use her plights to build herself and to become a voice for women and girls all over the world.
Trenell has a Bachelors degree in Sociology and her Masters of Jurisprudence in Child Law and Policy from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law. Currently she manages special education schools for the DC Public Schools and serves as an advocate for children in her community. In addition, Trenell founded a non-profit organization I Am Beautiful Because, a woman’s awareness organization that supports women and girls who have been victims of child sexual abuse. The seed for I Am Beautiful Because was planted from her own person experience with child sexual abuse.
