Vanessa Santiago is a resident of Rochester, NY and a member of Glory House International. She is a mother of two boys and has become the voice of Tamara. Who is Tamar? In the Bible, she was the daughter of King David. While the scripture does not speak extensively about her, one thing is mentioned and that is the rape she suffered at the hand of her brother. Because of how little is said of her, many have overlooked her story. In this same fashion many women are overlooked and their story goes unheard, however, Vanessa wants to give a voice to Tamara speaking out on her experience with such grace and elegance. "I want to give her a voice" said Vanessa when she sat down with Miguel Lebron (co-founder of TQP Ministries).
Vanessa has produced a documentary appropriately titled 'the voice of Tamar'. The documentary airs Sunday April 1st at 8:00 PM (est.) on Facebook and YouTube. Before her documentary airing, she sat down with Miguel to discuss the importance of setting goals, facing fears and the preparation for this projects."I just wanted to be her [Tamar's] voice. I feel like the plot can change, I know it did for me" said Vanessa.
