About Mandy Trouten
I live in South Carolina, where I was born and raised. I graduated from ITT Technical Institute with a degree in Computer Design and Drafting, later returning for another degree in Multimedia. I love to read, write, create graphics, watch movies, play online games, hang out with family members/friends and network. More than anything, I enjoy helping victims/survivors of abuse in their path to healing. I have always said I would undo the abuse and its effects in a heartbeat, but I am grateful for the opportunity God gave me to use my experience. I grew up hearing that there’s a silver lining to every cloud and I used to think “not this one.” In time, I realized “not this one yet.” If I had never had to experience the undeserved attentions of classmates, my life might have been normal. I might have gotten the career in architecture that I’ve always dreamed of, but I would not be a part of the fight against abuse because I would know nothing about it. That’s my silver lining.
A Philadelphia native with a B.F.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, Betsy worked as an account executive for several Philadelphia radio stations and as a commercial print model, appearing in television commercials in Philadelphia and New York. After moving to California, Betsy struggled and nearly became homeless. After she recognized her tendency to blame everyone else for her problems and decided to become accountable, she began to recover. For the next eighteen years, Betsy worked as an Executive Assistant to an entertainment executive in the film industry. She retired in 2005 and is now writing full time.
I admire women who want to make a change in the live’s of other women with the message they carry in their heart and soul. It is a powerful message for others who need a wake up call from successful, strong women from whom I learn a lot to finish what I started. In order to do that kind of change, you need clear vision of what you want to accomplish and strong spirit. There are a lot of obstacles on your road, but I can tell this, I am not going anywhere. From the rocks, I build a road, so others can have smooth travel towards their dreams and happiness. I am getting stronger and wiser because of these obstacles which try to keep me away from what I feel in my heart, the Right thing to do. So, stay tuned for what comes next, I am here to stay and my mission is clear. I am so grateful about what happened to me because this gives me a power to protect and encourage others, Love and Light, Dianna BelleRose
