Maranda Evans was once a troubled teen. She was filled with pain and secrecy. The constant threat of adversity caused her to make bad decisions. These decisions were dangerous for her body, heart, and soul. Over the years she became stronger and undefeatable. The more life threw at her the more layers of skin she began to grow. Maranda is now an accomplished author filled with ambition and perseverance. She received her Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting in three and half years from Sam Houston State University c/o 2013 and her Master of Business Administration with a Concentration in Accounting from Texas Southern University in December 2016. Maranda plays multiple roles by being an entrepreneur, hard-working corporate executive, and the relaxed writer and mentor. She has one main goal in life she feels God has called her to accomplish. Change lives with her story. . .
