My name is LaShae, and I am a mother of two boys and one girl. A little backstory about me; I am a 32-year-old African American. I am currently attending my community college to obtain an Associate Degree in Business Management. I have also been convicted of a felony, which makes it extremely harder for me to obtain stable employment. I was convicted of a crime that I did not commit. My codefendant who is also my sister refused to get on the stand and advise the jury that I was innocent although she did inform the Judge that I was 100% innocent however that did not matter because I was to be proven innocent or guilty by a jury of my peers. I was committed to SCI Muncy in 2012 3 months pregnant with my son. I had to deliver my son in prison ad was given only 24 hours with him. The next time I saw him was 4 years later. From that day forward my children and myself have been traumatized. I suffer from PTSD, Bipolar and GAD. I have been struggling with my mental health since a child. I decided to start a family convenience store in 2019 when it became clear that my mental health combined with my criminal background with always hurt me financially. My father died in a car fire in 2003. He was my only parent. On 7/12/2003 I had a nightmare that my father was on fire in his car and when I awoke the next day (7/13) my grandmother told us that my father was killed in a car fire. My heart dropped the fact that I had a dream about his death hurt me to the core. I was never the same. In 2006 I was about to go to work and my teenage boyfriend was stabbed to death in front of me. I lost all control of my mental health. I have been trying to get LOKY Boutique up in running for 4 years and my biggest setback is always the financial part. When an employer does give me a chance I can’t afford to save for my business and maintain my household. I just need some help. I just need someone to help me. I have been working on my credit to be able to get a start-up business loan however it has not been helping me. Please someone point me in the right direction it will be greatly appreciated. My goal is to solidify a stable financial future for my children. Any donations would be a blessing. My PayPal link is PayPal. Me/lokyboutique.
