"Broke and Broken" she decided to stand in front of a mirror, and practice talking as a public speaker.
Lisa, who was on welfare back then, started reading books and take inspiration from people like the Starbucks' CEO Howard Schultz and former NBA Coach Phil Jackson.
She has now completely recovered from her depression and has even talked about a past abusive relationship through her YouTube channel. Speaking through a video, Lisa mentioned that she was often assaulted by her partner and even her life was in danger.
However, she didn't say if the man was her son's father and whether she had married her abuser.
Lisa's son Jelani, now aged 24, is the apple of his mother's eyes, but he also suffered a tragedy as his fiance was diagnosed with cancer. The speaker shared a tweet to express her condolences.
"This morning I woke up and I looked at this video. The Cancer Story of my beautiful soon to be daughter-in-love, fiancee of my wonderful son, Jelani."
Neither Lisa nor Jelani have revealed whether cancer suffered by Jelani's future wife has been cured, but it seems like she has been recovering lately.
