One person's story was propelled into their purpose

During her journey towards happiness, she realized that her experiences were not unique to her. She soon saw that there were others who needed to find the same peace that she had been seeking.

Aspen turned to a social media platform and shared personal reflections of being on the other side of addiction.
Her voice resonated, transcending commonalities, and piercing the mutual heart of it all: addiction of a loved one. Aspen felt her purpose shift, and realized she could support those like herself to the other side of the proverbial tunnel.
Her desire is to help people rewrite their story, to take control of their
lives, and to realize that it is possible to love someone who is struggling,
without also being dragged into the undertow.
Through this journey,
Rebel For A Change was born.
The Rebel community is actively helping others find the strength and courage to tell their story. We strive to empower others to take back their happiness.
