Starr lives by the words, “I am not my past, I am my future.” At just seven years old, Starr was sexually abused at the hands of family members leaving her feeling paralyzed, confused, and ashamed.  For nearly two decades, she remained silent about her pain.  Without the knowledge of programs to support her as a child, it wasn’t until she had a heart to heart with her beloved grandmother, the late Maxine Davis, that she learned the power of choosing joy.
