TyWanda (Ty) was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and from the days of her youth Ty’s mom noticed strong leadership qualities and a perseverance to succeed in whatever task presented to her.
As most teenagers are raised in a Christian up-bringing, Ty experienced growing pains related to being a normal adolescent. However, she quickly noticed that she was different, 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 and because, 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, wanting acceptance, and the biggest disappointment was that she did not believe in who the Creator said she was.
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 said to herself “I Am Unmasked!”
