Author Veena Sharma and her book TENACITY
Veena Sharma’s spirit demanded that she risk the emotional pain of ostracism and realize her right to determine the colors of her own story.

It is her story of embracing risk and change and learning to dance with them. Beginning with a painting of life in Fiji that cradles readers so softly that they wish that they had been born there, readers then accompany her on an adventure to Canada as her family relocates. There is no way to grasp her family’s insistence she marry a stranger. Her parents, victims of cultural conformity, insist that she stay with him regardless of the physical and mental abuse he inflicts. Veena’s choices inspire readers to deny fear it’s power and to embrace change so they can become the authors of their own stories.

“From my perspective, every experience and every person we meet serves a purpose in our life, either good or bad. Your experience in life, including mistakes, struggles, and failures, doesn’t have to define who you are, but instead, it can indeed lead you to discover your true self,” says author Veena Sharma.

Veena Sharma is an overcomer who currently lives in Ft Myers, Florida. In this debut memoir, she shares her life journey, struggles, accomplishments, determination, and perseverance. Veena wishes to inspire, motivate, and encourage people and to evoke higher frequencies of hope.

She hopes her book will heal and transform others who are tired of living with woes or on plateau. Veena’s greatest satisfaction is living life making a difference.

In her memoir, she talks in detail about her childhood in a remote place in Fiji Islands, her adulthood in Vancouver, Canada, her struggles and her accomplishments. The book also contains golden nuggets as an inspirational message for the readers at the end of each chapter.
