an interview with JEWELS

How My Parents Raised Me

Jewels remembers the good times. As an only child living with her mom and a dad she adored, she remembers early childhood as a fun and happy time. But when Jewels was just 7 years of age the events of one night changed everything and her life was never the same again. What happens to a little girl when nobody is paying attention, nobody is loving her, nobody is listening to her, is frightening. And the journey she has been on was a fight for survival that would have crushed others. Jewels is the author of an award winning memoir called The Making Of A Woman from the inside out, a deeply honest account of a life lived reaching for the light despite the darkness.

About Dawn Chitty

How my parents raised

What was childhood like for you? Were you allowed to be you? Authentically you? Were you shown love, kindness & care? Or did you feel worthless, abandoned, unsafe or worse? Our childhood experiences can set us on a path to a beautiful life or they can lead us on a lifelong journey to find the broken pieces & put ourselves back together. In these open & honest conversations I chat with everyday humans about the profound impact their parents had on their lives. To reduce generational trauma we must speak & share truth. If you love to connect with real & raw stories there is so much wisdom here.
