Tameka Mclean, a former foster youth and Motivational Speaker, joins us today in a heartfelt conversation about how she has built an organization to support individuals to thrive no matter their background or life challenges. Tameka shares her story and tips on how she was capable of sustaining herself while having to endure the weight of a heavy load (trials, tribulations, turmoil, and trauma).
Tameka is the author of the book “11 Steps to Self Sufficiency” and the Founder/Executive Director & CEO of Poppy Muse Inc. Poppy Muse, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization aiding in the stabilization of young women transitioning out of foster care. The organization's work is led by foster care alumni - the founder, board members, and team all have lived experience in the system. Amidst all of life's challenges, Tameka obtained a Degree in Computer Applications Management, and is also an alumna of LIM (Laboratory Institute of Merchandising). 11 Steps to Self-Sufficiency is a book that has a focus on guiding foster care youth and young adults toward an adulthood of self-sufficiency.
