About Me

I'm a 41year-old mother of seven, three boys, four girls. A journalist, a former reporter. Divorce pending due to abuse after 22 years married. FEAR made me stay, more than love. Faith empowered me slowly. God did the rest. I have a burning desire to see better protection methods for the abused in my country. The All 4 Bracelet Alerts (ABA) Movement was born, to restart the NEED for legislation change mandating GPS tracking bracelet alerts for abusers, repeat offenders. As a deterrent for abusers. ABA is registering as an NGO in Trinidad. Will be on Eye on Dependency, TV 6, Sunday, December 10, 2017, at 6:15-8 pm, with other NGOs, individuals, survivors. The ultimate goal is to see reformation through curriculum-based re-education on abuse. Bracelet alerts in any country needed. Thank you so much for the opportunity to partner with you in the fight against Domestic Violence, Valdeen Shears..spiritual survivor.
