How Shametria Gonzales is Breaking Stereotypes and Empowering the Lives of Women

By: Get News

This is how the story of a brave changemaker reads: She started off as a young foster child, extremely poor, trafficked, who then became a teen mom. Instead of letting that break her, she chose to use her pain and past traumas to become the woman she is today. A global speaker, mindset coach, college graduate, award-winning advocate, and so much more, Shametria Gonzales is a force to be reckoned with, and an inspiration to other victims.

She was a finalist in Grant Cardone’s TV show, The Great American Speak Off. She was the only woman out of 30k people that made it to the top 4. She has spoken at 10x Growth Conferences, The Zurich Classic, Dress for Success Worldwide, and in schools all around the USA inspiring young people to become the best version of themselves. She is focused on helping individuals that want to unleash their stories to the world and want to get unstuck in life and move forward in their careers.

After more than 11 years of using her story to inspire others, Shametria is proud to launch herself as a coach and speaker. Her program, Unleash to Speak is a 12-week coaching program that will be open to 11 women per quarter and will be offered once every 4 months. Anyone that wants to reach their goals and uses their voice to create their story and change their life by changing their mindset is open to applying to join her program. Shametria is also the cofounder of a 501c3 called Home for Grace that she uses to donate 50% of the proceeds she makes from coaching and speaking engagements towards housing women that have been trafficked.

Members of her program also get a free pass to come to her event called Unleash which is a 3-day healing retreat held on a ranch that has healers, speakers, coaches, reiki masters, massage therapists, counselors, and each ticket bought will sponsor a survivor! Each person that comes will be partnered with a survivor they can then physically support during the event. This is an event like no other.

With every intention of helping others who share her past, Shametria says, “After 11 years of speaking and coaching, this is the best thing I can do for individuals as a testimony of what happens when you don’t give up and keep your eyes on your dream. I am on a mission to help individuals become the best version of themselves by embracing their stories and pushing past their limiting beliefs to finally get the healing they need. Her motto is "it's not how you start it’s how you finish”.
