I had the pleasure of meeting Takiya about a year or so ago. From the moment I spoke with her I knew she was amazing and a go-getter! She had this personality and humbling feeling about her. I knew she had a story, but I didn’t know what. I knew she had worked hard to get where she was and that God was leading her. She overcame one of the most difficult situations with God by her side. You can view a short article she wrote in The Island News.
“The numbers of this increasing epidemic were astounding and showed that it had almost tripled over a seven-year span. I couldn’t help but tear up as I thought of what it could possibly feel like to be without anything, much less a home to call your own, a dry roof over your head or a safe haven of protection for your children. My tears then turned to cries as I remembered so emphatically exactly what it felt like, as I myself was homeless just five short years ago.”
She is now the owner of Beautique Lash & Brow and has written a book about her story! “Never Forsaken ; A Memoir by Takiya La’Shaune ” is the title and you can purchase it on her facebook page!
I was so honored to be able to photograph her and her wonderful children. She has such great kids!!
“Through a photographer’s eye, my children and I were captured in the very place that I never wanted to be but have come to never want to forget.”
