Cecile Bibawy has a never-ending desire to spread the truth about mental illness, inspire people to tell their story, work toward ending the stigma that keeps people sick, and promote the health of mind, body, and spirit. After sunrises and coffee, that is, when she's not writing, she's exploring the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty with her children as she and her husband classically homeschool them. She teaches Zumba classes and tells her stories and struggles to anyone who will listen. Bibawy was a public relations practitioner for Faith Mission Homeless Shelters in Columbus, Ohio and also promoted Job Corps for a while in Upstate New York. She is available for key-note speaking about her story to your people. Find Cecile at cecilebibawy.com, Facebook, Instagram (@sincerelycecile), on her front porch, and at her favorite coffee shops.
Cecile tells the story of how she overcame shame and loss of
hope to discover and love the beauty of her mother's soul and mind.
