Damekio Gardner was the girl who had it all: designer clothes, lavish jewelry, fancy cars, and a few streetwise hustlers to provide it all. After dating Miles for a while, her life became a continuous, vicious cycle, dating one thug after another, all of whom wanted to live their lives in the fast lane. Her life was consumed by street drama, destruction, and tragedy.
For many years, Damekio struggled against constant animosity, the slandering of her name by jealous women, and constant battles with her lovers. She finally reached her breaking point in response to the death of her son's father; that's when she resolved to seek the guidance of God.
Damekio now knows that every experience of her life-the positive and the negative-was a lesson. Making mistakes and learning from them helped her to become the strong, passionate woman she is today. She now hopes to share her testimony to give hope to others who may be facing the dilemmas she did.
