Sacramento, CA Native, Sasha Ravae, 33, working as an author, editor, and book publisher Black Eden Publications for going on 8-years and a Marketing Manager for Kaiser Permanente for 7, Sasha realized that despite her success, something was missing.
Going through a transformational period of her own, she decided to start a page on Instagram in November 2018: Queens Healing Queens.
“I really did it because I just wanted to see more positive messaging on my timeline, but it quickly caught on.”
Since then, Queens Healing Queens has gained over 77,000 followers and has built a strong community of passionate women in healing all over the world. “This let me know that I was on to something.”
Growing up, she had a very problematic childhood. Her mother was a drug addict, and her father wasn't really around. Having a younger brother to take care of, she found herself being in the role of an adult at a very early age.
“As any young girl, I wanted to feel included, but instead I became a master at disappearing into the background. I didn't want to be noticed, to be acknowledged, because that would shine a light on what was really going on around me.”
She grew up with this new toxic superpower, and not surprisingly, she found herself in many of the same situations her mother was in, that her oldest sister found herself in, when it came to a lack of self-worth.
She found herself anxious, depressed, and unhealthy, weighing close to 300 lbs. at just 12-years-old; she felt unloved and unworthy, and that consumed the entirety of her life until around the age of 27. She was searching for love in all the wrong places, never even imaging that it was dwelling right there within myself.
That reason alone now compels her to keep moving forward with the work that Queens Healing Queens was sent here to do. By healing her mind first, Sasha was able to heal her circumstances, and, now, her goal is to help as many other women as she can to do the same.
