Helena shares a message of resilience to build confidence.

Students are dropping out of school, depression, suicides, and destructive addictions are at an all time high. You need a voice of hope to cut through the negativity.  More than ever, you need to hire a speaker to inspire people to get on the right path.


Articulate is a book about resilience.  It is designed to inspire women.

The author takes the reader on a journey of healing as she uncovers the struggles women face but are too afraid to share. Domestic violence, grief, regrets, fornication, and abandonment.

Through her story to pursue higher education, she extends courage and compassion as she walks readers through collective experiences to help them cope with adversity.

Articulate explores the realities of Black women’s lives and shared problems. It leads up to embracing the strength of your individuality.


First-generation college students will find this book most beneficial. Articulate reveals my path of blindly navigating through higher education to earn my master’s degree.

Aspiring college students who come from low-income backgrounds often do not graduate college within six years. They are unfamiliar with the “hidden code” that is required to successfully graduate a four-year university.

The college “hidden code” consists of practicing good study skills and understanding higher education bureaucracy. Students from low-income families tend to work over 20 hours a week at a part-time job to finance their education. This makes them too preoccupied to crack the “hidden code.” Having a mentor can make a significant difference in the outcomes of first-generation students who do not have family members to guide them through college life. This book will serve as your college coach.

I would prefer readers to be 18 years old or older. I have tried to keep it PG-13 but it is a memoir which uncovers raw and unfiltered parts of my life. Parents are strongly cautioned; some material is inappropriate for children.

Hi! I'm Helena

At age 30, my life was a mess!

I was unemployed with a brand-new baby girl. Her father abandoned me when I was five months pregnant.  My bank account was overdrawn by negative -254 dollars!  My confidence was shot! I did not know what I was going to do!

I did everything I was supposed to do to avoid failure!  I went to college, earned degrees, got a job, started a business, fell in love, got engaged, and had a baby.  But I was right back at ground zero!   While standing in the WIC line, I decided I can’t raise my child like this!

I had my business on the backburner as a part-time hobby thinking that a job would provide more security, but I was laid off without a dime to my name!  I decided my security had to come from my work ethic and I turned a monthly seminar into a two-day class.  I offered the class throughout the country for over ten years.  I moved into a bigger house, purchased a luxury car, and comfortably lived as a six-figure entrepreneur.

Then my mom had a stroke that left her paralyzed.  I became her primary caregiver while being a single mom.  I had to start cancelling classes because it cost more for caregivers and babysitters than I was making for my classes.  I was on the brink of bankruptcy.  I had to make the tough decision to put my mom into a nursing home, the guilt killed me inside.

My anxiety, depression, and bank account were back at rock bottom!  I had to start all over again!  To get help from my brother, I moved my mom and my life to San Antonio, Texas.  I wrote a memoir during the pandemic of 2020 and it was the catalyst to push me to live my dreams of being a Rockstar!  Well, not exactly a Rockstar, but it has allowed me to inspire and motivate young adults and women throughout the world with the power of resilience.

You can pray for motivation.  You can ask for help.  The only thing that will change your life is deciding to change it.  When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, you will change!  I am big on planning everything, but some things cannot be planned!  Some things you need to trust your gut, move forward, and ask questions later.  Now, let’s get up and start working on becoming the greatest expression of ourselves.  I’m right here with you!
