According to Tracy; “When I started my life on this path I am currently on; as a mother of 5, student, advocate, wellness coach and serial entrepreneur. Many called me a joke and they said I will never go far on this path, because I was just too lost, and being a young mother of 5 never made things easier.
Now by the grace of God; I have been able to prove them wrong and still proving them wrong. Today I own a health and wellness business, met to empower and motivate other immigrant moms like me to invest their time and effort in doing something tangible for their lives and communities. I am also working on women’s empowerment series under Gradual Rising of Women (G.R.O.W) a non-profit organization, creating projects that would impact lives worldwide.
To capture my journey so far, I am working on my self-helped autobiography book titled; A walk to talk to God (Audacity to dare) lunching soon, along with releasing E-books to inspire women to GROW. Nowadays, I use my life to inspire and encourage women to believe in themselves, starting by living healthy in every aspect of life. An area in which I press to help them with the most”
