It never gets easy - we just get stronger.

Anna French had a unique upbringing – while her parents migrated to the United States to seek a better life, she was left to watch over her younger brother – and – lead an enviable teenage party life. 

As a mother, she worked hard to provide a comfortable life for her daughter. The long hours of work set the stage for “work hard, play harder”  Anna found herself innocently enjoying alcohol to the point of her own physical detriment, much like her father did. 

In this installment of The Women of Yoli, Anna dishes her story with a charming degree of candor, sharing her brush with addiction, detrimental health – and – how Yoli became her life line.
