A survivor.

In her book, A Gift from Adversity: Overcoming Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse, Bullying, and Homelessness, Juri Love lays her soul bare. Her triumph over these challenges and how she has used them to fuel her successes is an inspirational story of resilience.

“As clear from her story, Juri is an honest, perceptive and courageous woman and the account she tells in her autobiography of her trials and difficulties is confronting and yet inspiring. She has overcome abuse, despair, loneliness to achieve a great deal both professionally and personally, particularly through her ability to reach out and engage with others. Her book is an account of her struggles and her power to overcome her tribulations and her thoughtful advice to others in similar situations. It deserves to be read and shared widely.”
