In the final chapter entitled "Lessons Learned" Shelly Ann will share her determination to recognize the mistakes she had made through life and how deeply she had to look at herself to find change and the strength and courage it took to make those changes. She will inspire you to know and understand that no matter where you come from you can be all that you were meant to be.
