Barbara Amaya brings a unique perspective and voice to her writing, the voice of a survivor. Though Barbara endured early trauma and abuse she refuses to a victim. She aims to bring a message of hope and strength to others through her writing and spoken word.
Barbara volunteers with standupforkids.org a national nonprofit organization that works with runaway children. She’s currently writing a book, called Girl’s Guide to Survival: Life Lessons from the Street. Barbara is available for speaking engagements and you can follow her on Twitter BarbaraAmaya4, or contact her through her website at Barbaraamaya.com or on Facebook.
