Lynell Shantae is PurposefullyPretty

Hello Pretty ladies! My name is Lynell Medlock. I was born at the Westchester County Hospital, my mother went into labor with me while in the Westchester County Jail. To my knowledge I spent the first 6 months of my life in the nursery of the jail. Now normally with the way my life started one would think “doomed” since birth, however God had other plans for me and over myself I’ve declared “Purposed” since birth. Although I’ve faced many challenges growing up such as depression, rejection, suicide attempts, living from household to household the one thing that ALWAYS remains consistent in my life is God. A very wise man once told me “Stop using your past as a crutch.” I thought about that advice over and over until it became embedded in my mind and my sob story to me, no longer was a sob story it became a JOY story. I found joy in my go through and I began to thank God for allowing me to go through all of those things because it dawned on me that my PURPOSE is to help others. I realized that I could not help others without first going through certain experiences. You can not teach what you do not know. Although I am still not in the place I would like to be I am definitely taking the necessary steps to reach my set destination. Right now I am working 2 jobs as well as a full time student in college. Yes, it’s tough sometimes but I understand that anything that is great does not come easy. If I can take a handful of Jokers that I was dealt and turn it into a handful of kings and Queens, I know for sure that YOU can too. So to all that are reading these words I wish you nothing but success, prosperity, wealth and most of all PURPOSE! Stay Pretty
