Cierra Thurman is a native of Chicago, Illinois. She was raised in a gang infested neighborhood where high crime rates and drugs were considered the norm. From a young age, Cierra, was determined to make it out the “hood.” Her family’s transition to the suburbs and a full athletic scholarship to play Division One basketball was her ticket!
People who know her, describe her as an “old soul.” She loves to exercise, but only to combat her cravings for Southern comfort food. She prides herself on her dual education, book smarts and street smarts. This resilient young woman is determined to not allow her past to dictate her future.
Author, Publisher, and Transformational Speaker. When she’s not writing, she enjoys cooking, traveling, and a healthy dose of reality TV shows.
