Born and raised in Southern California, Sytra Latrice Fleming was just 3 years old when her mother passed away. Her aunt and uncle took her in, kept her safe and introduced her to a loving God. She went to church and enjoyed singing in the choir. At six and a half years old, Sytra was returned to her biological father who had regained custody. On her 7th birthday, her gift from him was a six pack of beer. This is when the daily beatings began. As the abuse escalated, so did her drinking in order to ease the pain. She kept asking herself – “Where is this God I had learned about?”
