I AM QUEEN Magazine Set To Host It’s 2nd Annual Brunch Under The Theme Forbidden Silence

 

 

Last year we hosted our very first Brunch, ‘Once Upon A Brunch’ at the Ritz Carlton Fort Lauderdale, Fl. It was simply amazing. We had women from The Bahamas, The United States, and Canada represented. Friendships were formed and business connections were made all while enjoying good food in a relaxing atmosphere.

This year our Brunch under the theme Forbidden Silence is designed to help women realize the power they possess when they speak their truth. The bible declares that we overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony which means that our stories possess the ability to save lives. Many times people are afraid to share their stories because of fear of rejection but sharing our stories liberate us from the expectations of others.

We would love to honor 15 mothers who have been working all year with little or no recognition. As mothers we serve and we do it with love but there are times when we need to be served. We want to pour back into you like you’ve poured into so many others. However, we can not do this alone. If you’d like to partner with us we are accepting monetary donations and gift bag items. If you would like to join us in the endeavor email us at hello@iamqueenmagazine.com.

Forbidden Silence Brunch is scheduled for Dec 7th, 2019 at The Palms Hotel & Spa Miami Beach Florida. Tickets go on sale November 16th.

Miko Branch, Dr. Moneshia Dashiell Along With A Host Of Queens Celebrate 3 Years With I AM QUEEN Magazine

 

It’s been three years since I started this magazine. I can remember the dream I woke up from when God directed me to begin this journey. Sometimes we may not understand the why and the how but, we must hold on to faith and trust in God. It’s been three amazing years that have been laced with obstacles and victories. New relationships were built and some old relationships died but there are three things that I learned along the way that I’d love to share with you.

Megan Kapri The Survivors Strategist: How I Found My Voice

April Cover Queen.png

 

I was not a liar-but who believed me? Many didn’t believe me, I didn’t believe me. I questioned why I was born and I attempted to commit suicide many times because the pain was too great inside. At 5 years old I had to do strange things and was molested. I didn’t understand how I could be treated this way. Then at 8 nothing changed just a different human I was sexually abused by a religious family member. This experience made me question whether God truly loved me and if so how could he allow me to be abused? At 10, the pain still didn’t end, I was raped by a family friend; when would this betrayal of trust end. “I was a liar”, he said. I learned to be silent because although I could speak- I had no voice. That same day I was seen by a physician who used ultra-violet light to shed light on my story. The light revealed the semen & other body fluids was still left on me. It was on that day I was given my voice.
