30: The Bad Stuff and All Our Battle Scars Will Give People Hope with Erika Cramer

Erika Ivette Cramer (formerly Sepulveda) from America is a wifey to a sexy ass Sri Lankan, mami of two cheeky boys, soul sistah to many and a confidence coach with a thick ass history. Yes, she swears a lot and she doesn’t care what you think. I flippin’ love that about her!

She’s an Oprah loving, spicy food eating, Bold Stand for confidence Puerto Rican living in Melbourne, Australia. She said she’s pretty sure she’s the only Puerto Rican living in Australia.

She moved to Australia for a series of romantic relationships that didn’t work out.

Here some of Erika’s Life Highlights that helped shaped her to be the woman, wife, mother, and coach that she is:

Raised by a single mother battling Bi-polar.
Dad left when she was 2.
The only child (but dad has 7 other children).
In and out of foster care from 2 - 16 years old.
Physically and sexually abused throughout childhood.
Mom and she had a terrible near-death car accident when I was 7.
Right after that, she was kidnapped by her estranged father.
Finally reunited with her mom at 8.
Churned through a bunch of different foster homes and attended almost every school in her town.
Barely graduated high school.
At 17 she joined the Army (served for 10 years both active duty and Reserve.)
Moved across the country to California.
Married her high school sweetheart at 19.
Became a bikini & music video model (google Erika Ivette, she dares you).
Went to school to become a Hairdresser.
Broke her back in a drunk driving accident at 23.
Learned how to walk on her own again.
Widowed by 23 as well, losing my husband to drunk driving.

After overcoming a life full of trauma, physical and sexual abuse, near-death experiences, loss, massive confidence-lacking, and more hard life shit, she decided it was time to get out of her pain and change her life dramatically.

That took her on a deep path to personal growth, lots of healing and dealing with her stuff to become the woman she is today.

Her past was cray-cray but she's so grateful that all of that happened to her because now she's obsessed with helping women own who they are, stand in their fully expressed confident selves.
