My name is PepperBrooks and here is MY STORY

My name is PepperBrooks and I am an inspiring journalist, creative strategist, and human services counsellor – and over the last 18 years, I’ve focused my life on helping vulnerable communities. Why?

I was bullied as a child and it damaged my self-esteem, which I am learning to regain, still, every single day.

I became a teen mother, survived domestic violence and a nasty custody battle.

I started a new relationship but became a widow before my 30th birthday.

I struggled with depression. I still struggle with depression; it was my best kept secret. 

Despite having to cope with my own mental health, I find solace in helping others. I am a supporter of all things fair… who tries to lessen racial, social and economic disparities through my community work and sharing personal stories, here on the The PuRRR.

I’m a highly sensitive person and sometimes terribly shy, but I’m putting aside my insecurities, acknowledging my fears, being uncomfortably honest – hoping to make a difference and giving the little girl inside a space to be heard…


HERE IS MY STORY

I displayed my first ad at a bus shelter…and got a call in 20 minutes!

I wrote resumes, biographies and business letters, I was busy.

I upgraded to writing copy and business plans with winning marketing strategies and innovative ideas!

As a creative strategist, I assigned homework to other small businesses to keep their costs low.
