Keya McClain’s journey into adulthood after graduation didn’t begin at college like many of her peers.
She had a baby boy at 18 and turned 19 the day after having him.
She was a single mother who went on to get her Associates in Applied Science for Paralegal Studies, a Bachelor is Arts in Legal Studies and a Master of Arts in legal analysis.
She worked at some of the largest law firms in St. Louis Missouri as a data entry clerk, legal secretary, legal assistant/paralegal and for the U.S. District Court as a deputy clerk for three federal judges.
After working in the field for over 15 years she felt burned out and unfulfilled.
She always enjoyed writing, poetry, empowerment and speaking.
She combined them all.
She started a non profit called Empower2Be in January 2015, wrote and self published three books of poetry, co-authored in two other books, one being a best seller on amazon (#BossMoms).
She has spoken at several colleges about education, living a purposeful life and her testimony of overcoming adversities.
She currently teaches the entire paralegal program at a Dallas college, started a podcast and coaches other poets to self-publish so they can leave their legacy.
