Shairing a special #RedBloomInRealLife guest feature on the inspiring woman is Vanisha Breault. A guest of Master Stylist Annah, Vanisha’s story is truly heartwarming and we hope you’ll take a moment to read her story…
Vanisha is the Founder, CEO and Social Justice Warrior of the Terminator Foundation, who’s vision is to reach individuals on a global scale that are affected by drug and alcohol addiction to radically revolutionize their lives using the Triathlon experience. After overcoming her own personal recovery and that of her daughter Eden, she became devoted to living her life and her recovery out loud. Using her past along with her skills and education, she helps others thrive after facing their own adversities. Vanisha’s mission is to declare war on the shame and stigma associated with addiction in hopes that other youth might find their way home and that every person grasped by the clutches of this disease may also find their voices and receive the support, acceptance and compassion that they legitimately deserve. Vanisha exemplifies that, regardless of the obstacles one may face, everyone can conquer them and build a life of resiliency and hope!
Q&A with Vanisha:
How do you define beauty?
“Beauty to me is defined by an inward acceptance of self and self-love. Accepting myself and loving myself through every age & stage of my life. This inward work shows up on my outsides.”
What’s a unique gift that you want to share with the world?
“The power of my story. And the gift of “Believing.” Believing in another human being when they cannot believe for themselves or in themselves (yet)”
How do you continue to Bloom?
“I laughed when I read this question 😊 I am able to continue to bloom when I can stand in the grace and mercy that’s freely given to me on a daily basis. In and of myself, I can be hard on myself at times...remembering Who I am, and Whose I am; changes everything...that’s when I bloom”
