Rose was a shy, quiet seven year old girl, one of four children to her parents Rodney and Leah. They lived in Memphis, TN with Rose’s siblings, older brothers Terrance and Travon along with Rose’s twin sister Tina. They were brought up in an abusive home where she would often find herself having to hide in her closet so she wouldn’t be next. Their parents both worked but could barely manage to make ends meet most of the time. Rose knew that wasn’t how life was supposed to be and prayed everyday for it all to end so she could have a normal life. Rose began to drink at an early age and later turned to drugs to deal with things. Rose found herself being a mother of two at nineteen and barely being able to make ends meet. Rose noticed her life was becoming a mirror image of her childhood and she was determined to not make the same mistakes her parents did.
