ABOUT AMBER:

At 12 years old, Amber Doll's world changed when her mother passed away. The struggle to process the loss of her mother and to care for her family, led Amber to abusive relationships, sexual assaults, a teenage pregnancy, her daughter being taken away from her, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Despite these challenges, she remains positive that she and each of us can actively build our best life.
