Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Erika Ruiz, an educator, book author, publisher, daycare owner, and the founder of the non-profit called Strong Family Bond. She was born and raised in the city of Los Angeles and currently lives in Silver Lake.
She conducts workshops and support groups for children and adults. She helps adults that deal with Healing, Anxiety, Depression, Inner Child Healing, and Life Transformation.
Please tell us about what it is that you do.
The mission that I care about the most is helping families find the words to explain real-life situations. Due to the pandemic, my daycare in the city of Silver Lake has been impacted tremendously. Therefore, it has given me much time to complete the rest of my books. I write about real-life challenges that children face and how to help them cope. I write my books in the form of therapy, children are able to express deep feelings and emotions. I also make my books come to life in my YouTube channel at Miss Erika Ruiz. All my books are published on Amazon and Kindle.
Please tell us about your non-profit – Strong Family Bond.
This year in 2021, I started my non-profit. I am creating and building a Healing Center in the city of Lake Los Angeles. We will offer retreats, readings, healing groups, special therapy events, and so much more. At the moment, I am offering them all over zoom now. I help children and adults publish their own books. I have a healing class incorporating my own book called “Heal Yourself Forgive Yourself” All of my books create healing and change.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
One of my main reasons I began to publish my books is due to the experiences I learned in my daycare. Families from different cultures, backgrounds, and ethnicities have a different point of view. I was asked so many times what to do when a certain situation happened. For example, if a parent became incarcerated or a parent passes away. These are very strong subjects and are not talked about much in schools, or even out in society. For some reason, it's been expressed in a type of shame or embarrassment. Keeping the silence brings much guilt inside a child's heart. And they need to know that they are not alone and this can happen to anybody anytime. Therefore, I decided to write my own books to help children and parents learn ways to help them cope through traumas and or grief.
