Crushing Chaos Podcast Episode 35: Rukshana Triem
Overcoming obstacles can stop us from wanting to go forward or push us to put our lives into action. Trauma is the most difficult obstacle to move past and can leave lasting damage to your inner struggles. However, having the courage to move past our trauma can provide us the strength to conquer anything. It allows us the ability to pay it forward and help other survivors of trauma overcome these obstacles. With the ability to heal others we can heal ourselves building on our confidence and providing us immense emotional growth. Today on the Crushing Chaos Podcast Rukshana Triem talks about her journey from a refugee camp fighting trauma such as sexual abuse to helping empower women to conquer their own trauma.
Rukshana Triem spent 10 years in refugee camps traveling from Mozambique to the United States. She overcame obstacles such as sexual abuse, and trauma in the camps. For 20 years she let that fear be a part of her life. However, she turned those experiences around by reading books, attending seminars, and personal development work. She knows from her experience that to overcome these traumas it requires intense personal work on oneself. That once you do you have the strength to not only help yourself but to help other survivors.
We all need help sometimes Rukshana helps with relationships, health and fitness, and finances all giving the women the chance to live their dreams. She offers training such as a four-week course to help you learn about money the way that you do. That will create a shift in perspective about money, which will give you peace of mind about your financial future. In addition to her coaching, she is the founder of the Firmina Foundation which expands quality education in Mozambique, Malawi, and Zambia by partnering with local governments, communities, and parents to provide physical school structures and additional support for schools in underserved villages.
Today on the Crushing Chaos Podcast Rukshana Triem talks about how to overcome your trauma and use that strength to help others. She discovers soon after coming into the United States that her passion was to help women in similar circumstances so she started the Firmina Foundation. She states, “one of the things that I look forward too is helping them change their stories on stage, I have collaborated with women in the Pacific Northwest once a year where we showcase some of these women to share these stories.” Sharing these stories allowed these women to build their confidence to heal themselves while helping to heal others. She states, “When we share our story we let go of shame, we also learn that this journey is not for us anymore, we give permission for other people to do the journey of healing know that they are not alone."
