TyWanda (Ty) was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and
as most teenagers raised in a Christian up-bringing, Ty experienced growing pains related to being a normal adolescent. However, she quickly noticed that she was peculiar and that God had a purpose for her life. Ty became a licensed minister in October 2010 and was ordained in October of 2012
In July of 2013, after becoming very drained realizing she was at the beginning stages of depression. She had been there before and definitely didn’t want to experience it again.
She prayed, cried, and that’s when it hit her, she was in disguise, she was not living as her authentic self. She was barely surviving from a place of hurt, trauma, wanting acceptance, and the biggest disappointment was that everyone thought she was perfectly okay.
After days of meditating, taking self-inventory, praying, and going through a major self-revival that led to a total reset, Ty looked in the mirror and in an attempt to affirm herself the words that poured out of her mouth was “I Am Unmasked and that's when the real work began.

Lets get Unmasked
I've known Ty for maybe 30 years, however we've been friends for about 15 years. With that knowledge I know you may think what I'm about to say makes me bias. And maybe so, but it’s true, I've seen Ty become. Unmasked is not just an anthem it's the embodiment of who she is. I've watched her Unmask insecurities and fears from delayed promises. I've personally seen her Unmask stereotypes and labels. Simply put I've seen her Unmask and become. She personally coachs me in my life. Bias, maybe, but I promise I wouldn't write it if I didn't mean it. If you need further evidence subscribe to her page or attend one of her conferences and you'll get to experience what I know to be.
My name is Neicey and I would like to say that I Am UnMasked literally saved my life! I started this journey back to Me about 3 years ago and I AM UnMasked has been very instrumental in my transformation and journey. I still use the tools and exercises that was given in our sessions today! Ty was very professional and unbiased. She has a unique way of helping you to see the other side of a situation. She taught me it was ok to be unapologetically me. She taught me to embrace the flaws that I tried to hide about myself and to stand in my truth with no explanations. Through the sessions I was able to get to the root of things I had compartmentalized for years. Through her tools and wisdom I was able to face those dark ugly places, clean out all of the preconceived perceptions of others and stand in my God given truth! Is this journey easy.. HELL NO... but with the help of I Am Unmasked I was and am able to continue this journey with grace and confidence. Thank you I Am Unmasked for helping me to reintroduce to the world an unapologetic and authentically Me
