She has reached optimum levels of success in her field as a social media expert and mentor and takes pride in saying that she was born to guide others to walk the path towards glory. Blair stands in a commanding position today despite a problematic past.
When asked about the troubled times she went through, Blair says, “being a child of divorce; I had tough experiences which made me more mature than my age—having a father who dealt with addiction and not there when needed most made my heart bitter. Growing up, I forgave him and had him back in my life only to learn about his terminal illness, which shattered my heart to pieces.”
She continues “I decided to start the I Am Resilient Project to give back and help the community with the lessons that I learned. That was the start of a turbulent phase of my life. I lost my grandfather and was in a car accident while returning from the funeral. A month later, my husband suffered a heart attack and had to go through surgery, and then finally, to add to my woes, I faced a traumatic anti-semitism experience.”
Things were heading for the worst, and then the pandemic struck, bringing in more misery, including a miscarriage. But each experience instilled more strength in me and made me more resilient, which is the reason I’m still going strong and healing forward and publicly.
The past few months have been extremely trying as a few of Blair’s close family members passed on. However, her undying spirit never lets her down, and she’s on her journey to achieve the stars. The I Am Resilient Book is coming out in Fall 2021.
