Porsha had everything she ever wanted: her J.D., a military career, a daughter. But as she lay unconscious, alone and dying in her house, it all seemed to be slipping away. And that day after being rushed to the hospital for her third brain surgery, her future hung in the balance.
When Porsha was a little girl growing up in East St. Louis, Missouri, her life was nothing but closed doors. Her upbringing was less-than-traditional; she was on her own by the age of 13. By then, though, she realized that no door is ever closed if you want to open it badly enough.
So she busted those doors wide open. Beginning with the day she watched ‘A Few Good Men’ as a child, she knew what she was meant to do in this life. She wanted to be a lawyer in the military, just like the hero of the movie.
