MEET: Tiffany C. Brown

SHE SAYS:

You never realize until life comes back full circle; until it makes you uncomfortable and makes you dig deep and re-evaluate your life.

I’d been fired from my job, where I thought I would spend the remaining of my adult life.  Everyone told me that I was so lucky and should make sure I kept this job. “Girl, you have a government job with great benefits and retirement.

And for the 1st time in life, I feel free. Granted, I understand I need money. Something just lifted from me, I feel renewed. I feel ok about being in any uncomfortable place in my life, unsure of my next move or destination.

The past 12 years I honestly felt trapped.  After spending five years stressed out and sick while working at a very popular cell phone provider, just to get fired because they refused to accommodate my medical problem.

Being hired as a government contract two weeks and the day of being fired in 2010 where I spent the last 6 years excelling and providing for myself just to be turned down for every promotion, even though I had the time and experience. To be accepted into a competitive student program for a sector of the government in 2016 to be fired 2017. I was hurt, and I realize there are some things that I could have done differently, but I also felt like I had no support. But I believe everything happens for a reason and a purpose, and everything is a lesson.

I always knew there should be something else I should be doing. I didn’t realize the universe would force me into it. Now, here I am 34 years old, seven months from my 35th Birthday, and I am back to square one. It’s never too late, and never be ashamed to start over.
