Chris-Tia Donaldson knows what it means to beat the odds. Going from the inner city of Detroit to the Ivy League to founding a successful hair care company and facing brutal trials like breast cancer along the way, she embodies the strength so many women in America aspire to have – and knows how the challenges women face can create remarkable perspective, calm, and understanding.
In This is Only a Test, Chris-Tia reflects on her journey as a black woman in corporate America and shares the lessons that life has taught her. From faith, family, and relationships to the importance of embracing gifts and defining success on one’s own terms, she shows how all women can follow their dreams while still staying true to their own needs, physically and emotionally. Letting the world go and finding their own pace. Every woman’s path is different. But the way to get there is the same: Keep your head up, rely on your true self, and ultimately, pursue your dreams – no matter what stands before you.
