Thriving Dreamers, Success Stories!
Escape Romania to Paying It Forward in North Carolina!
Below the video is Virginia Browns Story that we saw on a paper-towel holder as we ate a delicious lunch. I was pretty down that day as it just didn’t seem like “The Intuition Tour” was going well. I wasn’t finding the stories I thought I would. I was afraid! I almost stayed in my depression and walked away from asking about this interview, because I didn’t have makeup on, I wasn’t feeling happy and who knows what other excuses. As you can see I allowed my essence to take over and Im sure glad I did.
Virginia was running a restaurant and still took the time out to tell us about her dream.
Thank You angel Virginia Brown.
You feed belly’s and souls, and do both with grace, style and love.
Virginia’s Story: I escaped from Romania in 1989. I stayed in Austria until 1991 waiting for immigration to approve the visa for my children and myself to come legally to the United States. When I came to California in 1991 I had two children ages 17 and 15 and $10 in my pocket. I could not speak a word of English. I began taking classes to learn the language and to expand my education to be a good example for my children. In this situation, I was forced to use the public assistance program for a year and a half and I was helped by my friends and the community to get on my feet. One of my dreams then was to pay this forward one day.
In the last 20 years, I have successfully run multiple businesses making a comfortable life for myself and my children and grandchildren. Now it is time for my dream to come true. I realize there are a lot of people in this country who are in need of help. However, I do not know who they all are. This is where I must ask for your help. If you know someone in a hard situation just give us their name and a phone number where we can reach them. If you are able also to make a donation to the cause we will be able to help even more families.
I will then choose a name and invite them here to eat and I will take the time to tell them my story, hopefully inspiring them to keep fighting for their dreams. Then I am confident that they will one day pay it forward again. I would like to be able to help one or two families a day if not more in hopes of touching as many families as possible.
If you would like more information please feel free to give us a call.
