"Teens are exposed to a lot of negative messages. Those messages seep into their subconscious mind, creating self-doubt and self-sabotaging beliefs. I want youth to know they have the power to create their own reality and make it amazing. We teach them how to believe in themselves and apply valuable tools in life. TruExpansion Foundation is my way of planting seeds of empowerment in youth and making a positive change in the world." - Tawanna Rucker, Founder
