Middlesex, NJ, August 30, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Throughout the years, there have been many voices, sounding the clarion call for women’s empowerment. Joan of Arc; Susan B. Anthony; Gloria Steinhem; and Oprah Winfrey. As we have delved, headlong into the Information Age, one must make room for Regelle S. Thomas, Editor-In-Chief of Real Women Evolve. Real Women Evolve is the brainchild – and the baby – of this twenty-three year-old, women’s empowerment advocate.
Regelle has lived a life of empowerment. Abandoned by her father at age three; left to be raised by an abusive sister, when her mother left her native Trinidad to seek a better life for her family; and forced to emigrate to America when she was fifteen; Regelle is a survivor. She graduated Valedictorian of her senior class at Evander Childs High School and matriculated at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where she has taken a short leave of absence to focus on her mission to empower women.
In a real sense, Real Women Evolve is the personification of Regelle’s life. From having to re-construct a sense of self after years of abuse to working three jobs to pay her college tuition, Regelle has had to overcome tremendous obstacles on the road to becoming an Evolved Woman. “If I did not believe in myself and in my ability to overcome tremendous obstacles; have a mother, who has supported me every step of the way; and possess a personal faith, which sustain me during my most difficult moments; I would not have made it this far. It is that sense of belief in self and tenacity that I want to offer to women through Real Women Evolve.” Real Women Evolve is an Internet-based, content-rich, self-empowerment resource for women. Also, it is a place where women can connect, share, and heal. “Although there is a saying, ‘No man is an island,’ the same holds true for women. As women, we can share our collective struggles, failures, and victories, as we walk the road of total empowerment,” says Regelle.
Over the next few months, Regelle plans to launch a daily audio and video podcast as well as a radio show. Finally, she is in the process of writing her first book, Daddy Never Came Home.
