"Troubles Don't Last Forever"
Mona Dixon is no stranger to going through tough circumstances such as homelessness, but she overcame it and will be sharing her story of inspiration and encouragement with you!
Mona and her family lived on the streets and moved from one homeless shelter to another until the age of 13. A few short years later she was honored by
The President of the United States in the Oval Office.
After receiving her coveted Boys & Girls Clubs of America "National Youth of the Year Award," Mona was appointed to serve as the youngest member of a U.S. Presidential Community Service Committee alongside four other distinguished individuals.
At 18, Mona was also named one of the "Most Influential Black Women," alongside Oprah and Michelle Obama, by Essence Magazine. This has all led to her being awarded over $100,000 in scholarships, sharing the stage with "A" list celebrities, being featured in the national media, and starring in a national campaign commercial with Mark Wahlberg.
Mona, at 27, is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in organizational leadership and empowering others while speaking for corporate companies, schools, youth organizations, fundraisers, graduations, parent organizations, and homeless shelters.
