Our 6th Episode features conversations between two Sky’s the Limit entrepreneurs, Amnoni Myers, Founder of You Are the Prize LLC., a service-based company that offers speaking, training and consulting to child welfare agencies, educational institutions and foster parents who work with young people who have experienced trauma and Chris Harvey, Founder of Harvey Media, LLC and Blackwood Tulsa and Area Manager for Sky's the Limit.
Amnoni became a ward of the state at birth, and through her experiences, in foster care, she became committed to helping others understand the importance of their voice and experiences so that they can break the cycle of poverty. She felt compelled to write the book: You Are the Prize: Seeing Yourself Beyond the Imperfections of Your Trauma to highlight the experiences she faced to help people working with children understand the impacts of trauma.
With the success of her book, she turned it into a brand to create awareness, educational advocacy, consulting, speaking and training that would help address these issues with the goal of mitigating trauma by using trauma-informed practices in the care of children.
Amnoni previously worked with the U.S. Children’s Bureau as a child welfare policy consultant as well as interning on both Capitol Hill and The White House Domestic Policy Council where her policy recommendations on improving the system were picked up by a Senator and turned into draft legislation.
Amnoni She has been featured on The Root, Huffington Post, Chronicle of Social Change and The White House.
