“Rising above the turmoil of my childhood to create a new version of ME,
I am unapologetically, joyfully, free from a past that no longer defines me.”
Jerri St. John was born in New Jersey to young parents, who were apparently not ready for the responsibilities involved in raising a child. She was raised in California and resided in Maryland for almost 30 years.
She spent the first nine years of her life hiding from chaos, abuse, and neglect in her home and parented her two younger siblings at the age of nine years old. Jerri said she “had no idea what she was doing.” Why should she? Eight and nine-year-olds are not expected to be parenting other children. She was but a child herself.
Jerri lived on her own since she was 16 years old and worked to support herself throughout high school and Junior College.
Her life experience created in her a lack of self-esteem, self-doubt, loneliness, and morbid obesity. But Jerri’s story does not end there. She may not have had dolls and afternoon play tea parties, but she learned to take control of her emotions, embraced life, and excelled in customer service throughout her business career.
"Rising above the turmoil of my childhood to create a new version of ME, I am unapologetically, joyfully free from a past that no longer defines me."
Jerri proudly shares that she grabs hold of life. gratitude and positivity in her daily life. Does she spend a lot of time in the past? No. Instead, she views her past as life experience rather than pain and regret.
