Strong willed and determined since a little girl, this Mom of three, Wife, Worship Leader, Writer, and Career Woman, believes dreams come true if you do the work. Nikyla has always been passionate about the things she sets her mind to. She has overcome many challenges in life from a young age, from skipping grades in school, marrying at the young age of eighteen, finishing a Political Science degree, and Education degree while parenting two children and pregnant with a third, to now embarking on a journey to help women all over the world find help and healing for their minds. Nikyla truly believes that overcomers are people who don’t quit.
Her story of victory over severe anxiety disorder, after her third child, is truly one you must hear to believe. It will transform the way you view people with mental illness, and even the way you view yourself. Nikyla believes that her transparency and dedication to making people aware of mental health issues will save lives. She believes her story of overcoming has not ended with her healing, but is starting as she launches Be Brave.
