Rahkal's coaching style was perfect and tailors to the person whom she's working with. She was relatable, engaged, and knowledgeable, and it was evident that she cared. The homework assignments are what challenged me. It made me put the words to action to actually start seeing a change. It definitely motivated me for my future successes.

I am now aware of my work style, which will be shared with my supervisor. This information will make my transition into this new role easier.

MORE ABOUT RAHKAL
Sometimes, numbers do lie! Statistics say children raised in domestically violent homes and/or homes filled with substance abuse and poverty are less likely to succeed and more likely to become products of their environment. These are my statistics, but this isn't my story. I firmly believe in dreaming bigger, living purposefully, owning your narrative, and that your past doesn't have to dictate your future.
Born to a 19-year-old heroin and cocaine addict on the rough South Side of Chicago, raised in poverty, drugs, domestic violence, and fatherless, resilience and overcoming adversities is my middle name. Humble beginnings drive my desire to advocate for women of color and marginalized individuals.
As a first-gen college grad and champion for emotional wellness, I am passionate about helping individuals thrive personally and professionally.
I work with organizations and individuals to develop talent and break free of self-imposed restrictions while cultivating harmony and strategy to live more significantly. My mission is to serve, inspire, and help individuals confidently identify, own, and live out their God-given purpose. With over a decade of professional experience, I've worked in many capacities, including broadcast media, project management, and education. My creativity, knack for organizing, keen attention to detail, and passion for speaking have garnered opportunities to work for conglomerates, including CNN, Warner Media (formerly Turner Broadcasting System Inc.), iHeartMedia, and Fox Chicago News.
I am a proud HBCU alum with a Master's in Media Communications and Training from Governors State University and a Bachelor's in Radio/TV/Film from Texas Southern University.
I love to blog about my faith in Jesus Christ, being a newlywed, and professional development strategies.
