Lorna Blake

Member Since: 02/2023


Born to a poor, teenage mother in rural Jamaica, Lorna Blake experienced poverty, abandonment and abuse. She boarded a plane to Canada on her own as a teenager with no guarantee of a visa, eventually gaining citizenship. Lorna defied the odds, overcoming poverty to graduate from university with an honors degree in social work while becoming the mother of two young children. Her passion for learning and helping people transform their lives has led her to work in 5 different countries, where she’s taught and inspired thousands globally. Finally confronting being a Fatherless Daughter after more than 50 years, Lorna’s heart-wrenching story is captured in the recently published book No More Chains 2. Lorna’s captivating story was also featured in the film/documentary just released in January 2019 and coming to a theater near you.
