"I had six scar removal surgeries between the ages of 2 and 16 but the burns remained highly visible" said Bryant. "As a result, I didn't look at myself in the mirror until I was 25 years old because I didn't want to see my scars.

LOS ANGELES - s4story -- LOS ANGELES –   While most 18-month-old toddlers are learning to say their first words and perfecting their walking skills, Audra Bryant had much bigger issues to deal with at that age. One day, while home with her father and another relative, she mistakenly pulled off a table a cup of scalding hot coffee which splattered on her causing severe burns to her chest, neck and shoulders, hospitalization, and permanent scarring.

"I had six scar removal surgeries between the ages of 2 and 16 but the burns remained highly visible" said Bryant, a certified Life Coach. "As a result, I didn't look at myself in the mirror until I was 25 years old because I didn't want to see my scars."

In her self-help memoir, "I've Got Scars Baby! How to Embrace Your Scars and Power Your Purpose", Bryant details a lifetime hiding her burns which prevented her from having the confidence to pursue her dream of being a singer and maintaining loving relationships. Through prayer, affirmations, therapy, and other methods she shares in the book, Bryant eventually found her purpose by embracing her scars.

In her book, Bryant provides readers with questions and advice to help them towards self-acceptance and healing from their own trauma.

Since her healing and self-discovery, Bryant has gained success as a motivational speaker and performs "Scars" a song she wrote to encourage her audiences. She's also made a name for herself as a podcast host on her show "I've Got Scars Baby!" (https://www.audrabryant.com/podcast), where she interviews guests about how they've become empowered by their scars. Among the guests who have appeared on the show include popular actress and social media personality Tabitha Brown.
