"If I Can Do It, YOU Can Do It"


Edited: Jun 23, 2017

Our Founder, Elishia, is often asked as to how she became involved with the topic of violence against women and how she embarked upon starting this organization. We tend to sit back and beam with pride as we watch her shuffle through a brief moment of nerves until she settles in and tells her story. It's even more interesting to see people react when they don't realize she has TBI (a traumatic brain injury) that she is working through, which was sustained from her incident. (Talk about a trooper!).


If you've had the pleasure of meeting Elishia, you'll notice she comes across quite normal and healthy--oh, and she raves of how she is a jokester! But underneath it all she is battling PTSD, trauma to her nerves, haunting nightmares, the responsibility of regulating her over-working "fight or flight" receptors...yeah...what keeps her going? We asked her. She said, "knowing we can help the next woman, the next girl. I have to keep going. I may be slower than usual, but I have to. I have to help them. It hurts me knowing that they will suffer as I did and most likely worse. It is our duty to create opportunity for them after they have been victimized, give them a sense of purpose, you know?"

If there's one thing we've learned through working with Elishia, it's that no matter the circumstance, no matter what difficult spot we are going through, no matter the degree of horror, we have to find the strength within ourselves to get back up and not allow for "victim" to remain our title.


"Don't let your situation define you. Don't let it become you. You very much so are worthy of greatness and more. Listen, if I can do it, you can do it!"
