Today we’d like to introduce you to Venus Chandler.
Venus, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I am a survivor of abuse such as molestation, rape, physical and mental abuse. Throughout my life, I had so many issues with depression and self-destruction as a result. My mother who was 47 years old when she died was just a shame in itself. She was a very depressed woman and lost all hope. I knew I did not want to die like that, so I started on a journey to find hope. I had gone through so much pain and I wanted to just end it but then God delivered to me my purpose in life one morning in 2016. When my purpose was delivered to me, I found hope. This is when my organization Girl Power Within was born. It then became my life’s mission to go back and rescue all broken women and show them how to rediscover their power within. Since I have discovered my power within, I was able to then write my book called: “A Silent Scream, My Story, My Truth.”
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Has it been a smooth road? absolutely NOT! I lost so many friends, family and other because I knew that I could no longer surround myself with just anybody. People that I expected to be there for me and to support me did not. It was very hurtful and I cried a lot at first but then, I realized that God was in this so I have all the support I need for the moment.
Please tell us about Girl Power Within.
My organization is to help all broken and lost women. I want to help them to rediscover who they are. I want to help them to find their voice again. I want to teach them how very important woman is to this world and how they play a divine part in this plan.
What I do is an impact, inspire, distract and destroy. I impact and inspire women to be their authentic selves and that is where their power lies (within). I distract from negative thinking and teach women they can do and be whatever they choose to be. I destroy all the negative thinking. Negative thoughts about herself and what others have said that isn’t true.
I am most proud that I am able to help change a life!
What sets us apart from any other Organization is that my organization is ALL about women and helping her to really understand the power she holds. My organization help to take you all the way back to when you first believed in superheroes and becoming one. My organization help women to understand that WE as women are still superheroes and the world can not exist without us. My organization teaches women that we are strength in numbers!
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from my childhood is when I was 9 years old. My grandfather was my superman and I felt protected and thought, I was the superhero “All Mighty ISIS” and I could be whatever I wanted to be.
