Living in the margins of society is difficult enough without having to deal with the ramifications that living a marginalized lifestyle causes, such as mental, physical and emotional health issues.
Like a cut rose laying on the street, marginalized individuals often feel helpless in our society, waiting for someone to pick them up and put them into a glass of water so that they may live a little longer.
Peering Your Peers believes that in empowering the marginalized population you greatly increase their drive and desire to improve their level of living. [Nina Wallerstein (1992) Powerlessness, Empowerment, and Health: Implications for Health Promotion Programs. American Journal of Health Promotion: January/February 1992, Vol. 6, No. 3, pp. 197-205]
If you find that you or someone who you know needs assistance in finding, claiming and using their strengths and abilities in order to empower themselves than take the first step and contact Peering Your Peers.
I take my personal experiences living as a marginalized individual and my journey of empowerment in order to provide you the support you need to start your own journey. I do not ‘push’ or ‘force’ anyone to do anything, I do provide support in making positive decisions and give guidance as to where to start or what the next step should be.
Remember that nobody or no thing can, or should, control your life but you. Take back the power and control. Become someone. Hold your head high, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well.
Contact me and lets start your journey of empowerment today.
