Meet Our Brave & Beyond Honoree: Shilesha Bamberg

Every quarter Jemma Everyday recognizes women from across the country who have faced extreme adversity and moved beyond to share their story in order to educate and inspire others.

Jemma is pleased to introduce Shilesha Bamberg, our newest Brave & Beyond Honoree. Shilesha Bamberg works every day to defend our nation's most vulnerable. As a survivor of a traumatic childhood marred by abuse and neglect, Shilesha knew that making the sacrifices necessary to secure a high-quality education could help change the trajectory of her life. Today, Shilesha uses her powerful voice to help others in her community and beyond struggling under the weight of abuse.

On February 12, 2015 at the age of 57, Yolanda went through weight loss surgery through GBMC's Comprehensive Obesity Management Program (COMP). She shares her battles with weight loss in hopes of inspiring others to regain control of their lives and future.
