Yushima Cherry moved from Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2009 and now resides in Alabama with her family. She began writing at age five, a skill cultivated by her father. She has always enjoyed writing, research and motivating others. Yushima has a Masters of Social Work, a Bachelors of Psychology, and an Associates in Business Administration. While her education is important, her life experience is what really helped to mold her into the person she is today.
With over a decade of experience working with families and survivors of abuse and other trauma, her nationally recognised program “JUST US” was the main program for the YWCA for seven years. Yushima’s passion is eliminating abuse on every level and helping others to understand their potential and worth.
Yushima is known for her bubbly and sometimes goofy personality, but when it comes to advocating against injustice, abuse and neglect she is all business. She is a mama bear and a loving wife. She laughs loud and fights hard for what she believes in. She has a personal relationship with God that motivates her to continue moving forward, even when things get difficult. She is learning how to enjoy life again, while overcoming adversity. Yushima Cherry Burks is a force to be reckoned with.
