You can recognize survivors of abuse by their immeasurable courage. When silence is so inviting, they step forward to encourage others and share their truth so others know they are not alone and empower them to boost their self-confidence and eradicate self-limiting beliefs. As a survivor of domestic violence, drug abuse, and depression, Stephanie Barnes is the epitome of hope. Her experiences and testimonies changed the status quo for other abuse victims, encouraging them to step out of their shells and live a happy and fulfilled life.
Stephanie Barnes is an African American woman, entrepreneur, three-time best-selling international author, and advocate against domestic violence and motivational speaker. Globally acclaimed for her powerful testimony of how she overcame challenges as an African American woman in today’s society, she has been featured in various media networks such as CBS Affiliate KUTV 2, USA Today Affiliate AZCentral, Digital Journal, Boston Herald and many others. By sharing her life experiences, Stephaine has spoken life into the dreams of many women, inspiring and empowering them to keep pushing to fulfill their dreams, face their fears head-on, be extraordinary and unstoppable in their pursuit for happiness.
Influencing women of diverse races and backgrounds through her words and actions, Stephaine is widely acclaimed for her authenticity and compassion towards others. Her life embodies “Proverbs 31: 10-31: Many women do noble things, but surpass them all.” With faith, belief, and determination, the go-getter is specifically focused on helping women of all ages conquer the 3 D’s: Drug Addiction, Domestic Abuse and Depression, her personal experience places her in a position of authenticity to genuinely recognize the emotional milestones it took and takes to conquer such challenges.
“I’m genuinely a person who likes to give and see others win, but I was never investing in myself in such a manner. At 50, I realized that if I took my last breath at that moment, I would be taking a gift with me that could possibly be a prescription for someone else,” she shared.
Stephanie has indeed run the gauntlet as an abuse survivor who went from working a corporate 9-5 job to being a bestselling international author and motivational speaker. She wants to remind everyone to stay true to themselves regardless of the circumstances. “You owe no one but yourself. “You do not have to wake up every day feeling like you’re an accident and that you are not alone,” she said. “You are enough regardless of how much damage you think you have done and encountered. Your pain has a purpose which will result in learning the lesson, and in some form or another, it will serve others.”
In the coming years, Stephanie Barnes wants to continue inspiring and empowering women worldwide, speaking on large-major platforms, running an outreach-resource program to offer women/teen women to better themselves in their overall lives.
