That is, until she is scandalously set up to be raped, drugged and left for dead. Just when Kamone thinks it's the end, she finds what every bad girl longs for , a bad boy with a heart, who literally picks her up out of the gutter.

In order to survive, she was introduced to the dope game. It wasn't long before Tanika was caught up in the street life, and all the drama that came along with it. This life eventually landed her in prison on murder charges at the age of 16, and pregnant.
The penitentiary became her turning point. Within two months of incarceration, Tanika received her G.E.D., attended college full time with hopes of receiving a degree in psychology, received vocational certificates in Culinary arts and Building trades and pursued her life long dreams of becoming an author, after endless encouragement from a prison guard.
Today, Tanika is a 27-year-old reformed woman whose main goal is to reach the hearts of others through her writing. Tanika has plans to devote her life to helping misunderstood youths upon her release. She feels as though she had been there, done all that. Tanika is a divine example of God's mercy and grace!
