Coming from modest beginnings on the southwest side of Houston, Texas, Nitra Gipson was raised in a dysfunctional family. The repercussions of psychological, emotional, and physical abuse, sustained during her childhood, nearly shattered her life. Living her private pain and her uncle’s tragic public death by execution galvanized her interest in the law and the workings of the legal system. In December, 2008, she graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. In the interim, she sued one of the nation’s largest corporate entities after being falsely accused of committing a felony while on its premises. A sizeable award ensued from the verdict in her favor. Nitra defines her success and personal accomplishments by her relationships with loved ones and supporters, most notably her mother, siblings, and fiancé, with whom she envisions a future filled with hope. This is her first book.
