Persistence in Adversity has created a platform where people can go to gain knowledge, insight, advice, and encouragement. I was honored to be a speaker for her podcast and help spread awareness of child abuse as well as the warning signs and the various resources available to help victims of child abuse recover and heal. Dr. Adame and her guest speakers are always ready to offer words of encouragement and motivation to people in need. I commend her diligent efforts in creating awareness about difficult topics and opening the lines of communication to educate the community and help those that may be suffering in silence.
