A coming of age memoir about a teenaged girl navigating her way through life's circumstances while fighting not to allow peer pressure to deter her from loving herself and ultimately finding her purpose. Growing up in a single-parent home in Oakland, California, prepared Tamara for an uncertain future, and although she was uncertain, she knew her present and future did not include people who mistreated and disrespected her or even failed to see her worth. To preserve her heart, mind, body, and soul, she built a wall of protection that ultimately shielded her from people without good intentions and removed all traces of self-doubt. Finding Comfort In My Own Skin highlights the power of purpose and provides an escape for teenagers and adults who find themselves bound by life's circumstances and the actions of others.
