Hello and allow me to introduce myself. My name is Autianya Pascqua-Rivera, the founder and CEO of Save a Soul Foundation. Let me share my amazing testimony and how Save a Soul Foundation was born.
I am a woman who has experienced almost every walk of life, along with a life altering condition. I have experienced child abuse, molestation, rape, spousal abuse, becoming a widow, becoming paralyzed from severe car accident, losing my mother to cancer, drug abuse, incarceration, homelessness, and finally…overcoming all of these things.
When a severe car accident left me paralyzed and wheelchair bound, I didn’t let that stop me from following my dream as an Entertainer. So, when I was asked to perform at Los Angeles Central Juvenile Hall and saw the impact that it made, I was instantly inspired to continue to touch the lives of our youth. Hence, the vision of Save a Soul Foundation was born.
