Meet Cynthia. A woman filled with joy, Cynthia’s journey has taken her to places of both light and darkness. Just weeks before her 17th birthday, Cynthia endured a traumatic labor and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Unfortunately due to family circumstances and the shame brought upon her household, she was forced into having her son adopted. Transitioning back into a normal life, post-baby, Cynthia lived a life of mediocrity— riddled with low self-esteem and deep sadness. A few years later, Cynthia was married and had a daughter; during this time she was also able to reconnect with her son. Despite finding closure, the emotional scarring remained, and she still felt broken. Her emptiness and worthlessness grew and Cynthia was at breaking point. One night whilst getting ready for her husband’s industry event, Cynthia stood in front of her mirror, unhappy with what she saw. After years of the same feeling toward her reflection, something in her changed and she decided enough was enough. The following morning, she drafted a 12-week health and fitness plan, vowing to take control of every aspect of her life. After making the choice to live her life differently after so many years of heartache, Cynthia kept up the momentum. After the first 12 weeks, she proceeded to tackle another 12 weeks— this time developing a business plan and logo. Cynthia knew that her journey wasn’t just for herself— she was going to inspire other people to take charge of their lives too. Now a Transformation Coach and the director of ‘My Breakthrough Body’, she assists men and women in reclaiming their lives. Despite her rocky start, Cynthia managed to turn her life into something beautiful and continues to strive for goodness. She is a Strong Woman.
