SEATTLE — Christy Abram believes writing holds the key to moving on from past traumas.

 Through her book "Speak Your Truth, Heal Your Heart" Abram encourages women to use writing as a tool for self-reflection, drawing boundaries, finding forgiveness and expressing pain. Her self-care initiative Brown Girls Write is aimed at helping women of color connect and share past traumas through writing. 

Abram joins New Day Northwest to talk about the healing power of writing, her new book, and Brown Girls Write.
