Tawana Anderson LLC, was founded in 2014 after years of friends and family encouraging me to share my story of perseverance, courage and resilience. I grew up in a neighborhood that was full of drugs, alcohol and high school dropouts. At the age of 16, I became a teenage parent of twin boys. Teenage pregnancy was normal at other high schools in the area, but wasn’t normal at my high school. At times I felt like I didn’t belong, but I didn’t let that stop me from graduating on time. I share my message with teen moms, but also with anyone who has struggled with life’s trials and has found it hard to keep pressing forward.
My life experiences have taught me a great deal, not only about choices and consequences, but also about learning to forgive myself and about moving forward beyond the pain. In this, I have been able to realize my greatest accomplishments - two young men who could not be more beautiful inside and out and my life's purpose! Here I am! Ready to spread my message and share my purpose with you!
My mission is to encourage others to let go of the past and the pain, forgive yourself, and live in the present. I also want to show others that with hard work and dedication you can be successful and happy. I have earned three degrees and my hardworking sons are currently attending LSU as Engineering majors. I have a lot to SHINE about!!!
SHINE is a program to empower people to let go of their past hurts because the reality is that stuff happens and that’s how we grow. Without adversity and trials we would never have the opportunity to learn how great we really are.
Isaiah 60:1 - Arise, shine, for your light has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
It’s time to come out of the darkness and S.H.I.N.E.
