This week the Soul Forge brings you an author interview with Unique'ka. Her self-published book is called The Glow Up. It's a self help book based on the journey of her life. Sit back and listen to a tale as unique as Unique'ka.
Coming from an abusive childhood shaped many factors in Unique'ka's life. She and her brother were both sent to foster care. Her anger issues and feeling of abandonment caused her to run away several times. However, the one constant in her life, was her love of reading and writing.
After dropping out of high school, she began stripping at the age of 17. In time, she had a son and wanted to do better for him, and for herself. Unique'ka began a life-long journey of self reinvention.
Reading self-help books and living her life by their principals is what really helped her turn her life around. She used these books and the lives of people like Oprah as a kind of guidance counselor.
We end the podcast with the story of Unique'ka finding her birth family. We also learn about how the book came to be. You can purchase The Glow Up in several places, but the best sources are Walmart.com and www.msuniqueka.com
