Who is Arlether Wilson?
A Woman of Substance
By Cynthia Michaels
Every woman has struggles and challenges throughout their lifetime. But not like Arlether Wilson. Her life is quite unique and plays out like a tragic Cinderella Story. Saying that she is a survivor doesn't say enough about the journey that she has traveled. She lived through the abuse of the foster care system for more than ten years of her life. She survived sexual abuse, homelessness, and the ruthless living environment of Fifth Ward, a poverty stricken community in Houston, Texas. When I sat down to read Arlether's 255 page Book, I needed to take a few breaks - to breathe deeply, and thank God that she is still with us and able to write about her life, in a shockingly, truthful account. Most women would have given up, if they had suffered through the childhood that she went through. She endured so much pain. She was robbed of her childhood and her innocence. Her life changed after Black American poet, essayist and lecturer, Nikki Giovanni visited Phillis Wheatley High School. That was the first time Arlether was inspired to write. Her
book, Rewriting the Script, takes you on a vivid journey of a nightmarish life that she survived to become a woman of substance.
Rewriting the Script is a story of abandonment, abuse, grief and success. It's a celebration of rebirth. A story of one woman's struggle and her courageous attempt and triumph to turn her life around. She became a Mother, a Wife, a divorcee, a Police Officer, a certified Child Abuse and Family Violence Investigator and then pursued her Masters Degree in Behavioral Science. She is a proud and good mother of two wonderful young adults. She is working on her next book and her doctorate degree. We celebrate her as she continues to rewrite the script of an accomplished life. Thank you for being an inspiration to women.
