Don't think of what you see, think of what it took to get to produce what you see, Mandelbrot

An artist by birth Latoya Wright has always allowed her God given gifts to guide her.  A native of St. Lucia, Latoya is an author, poet, song writer, motivational speaker, mentor and entrepreneur. Learning from both the positive and negative experiences of her life, she gained insight and wisdom that propelled her into action to helping others. She is dedicated to helping people and her community. Her goal in life is to make a difference is every life which she comes across and leave a legacy of positive works for her children.

 

Latoya has worked in the media industry as a radio personality, sound engineer and administrator for “WDJZ Radio 1530AM" in Bridgeport, Connecticut and has managed communications and video/media departments for churches. By assignment of a counselor Latoya discovered a hidden generational gift in photography and this led to her establishing her media/photography company called Yandia Designs and Photography covering from web design to photography to other graphic and media needs. 

 

On the devastating heels of hurricane Tomas she founded the non-profit organization H.E.L.E.N (Helping Every Lucian Empowering a Nation) serving victims of disasters with needs and services. She recently went on a trip back to St. Lucia to deliver the goods and items collected for the victims. Latoya also volunteered as a youth leader , youth federation President, children's choir director, community service leader, cafeteria supervisor and food service director for a summer camp. She has partnered with government agencies and works tirelessly to help her community and with iServe, a youth focused community service movement.

 

She became an advocate for abuse victims and started a ministry on abuse awareness and suicide awareness. She began to write devotionals and established a web site for abuse awareness and healing called Related Healing. This propelled her to working with women and girls as a mentor and guide. Latoya is an empowerment facilitator with 4RWI, Inc since 2012 and has since used her talents to co-facilitate workshops on dealing with divorce and separation and written for the Empowerment 4 Real Women Magazine. One of her most humbling experiences is her time at Blue Mountain Academy, a christian boarding high school where she served in many capacities including supervisor and assistant Chaplain.

 

As a child of God she recognizes her talents and opportunities as a gift from above, and uses them to inspire others. She has endured a slew of life’s ups and downs but was determined to live through them all. The lessons learned and are being learned from some of the most painful and difficult times have made her determined to help anyone who would listen, to see wisdom in the story of life. Her journey is not over but her influence is active now! Grace is her claim and Jesus is her champion.

 

She lives in Michigan and has transitioned to parental guide to her three amazing children Sierra, Victoria and Nigel II.
