The Mango Girl by Ava Eagle Brown
About The Book:
Growing up being abused by her father, deemed unworthy of the love of her mother, ashamed of your upbringing, living in an environment that few survive, and no where to turn but within, The Mango Girl was determined her life wasn’t going to end the way it began. From a very young age, Dr. Ava Eagle Brown learned the life lessons of perseverance and survival. In “The Mango Girl” is the courageous story of growing up in one of the poorest areas of Jamaica. Ava’s determination and courage gave rise to her belief that she was destined for more than her community could offer. The expected and ingrained recreational activities of sex, raising babies and going to the farm were not enough for this young girl. She taught herself fortitude, enough to forge a very different path than the one expected of her. Ava’s story starts in an area of high deprivation, even by rural Jamaica’s standards, where the need to find food often won over school attendance. Her journey through her adolescent years was dominated by the dark shadows of incest, homelessness, violence and sexual abuse. Ava’s life took an entirely different path when the event of being held and raped at gunpoint in front of her 3-year-old daughter finally pushed her to flee her home country to save her sanity. She describes it as being ejected from her OWN DNA. Resilience and love for her native country allowed Ava to see all her harsh and disappointing experiences as mere stepping stones to becoming a strong and self-reliant woman; a woman who is capable of helping our society to break the cycle of poverty and its effects. This book was written and Ava now lives a life of purpose and passion to impact lives, awaken individuals young and old, and cause shifts that create change for women and girls to live a more empowered life
About The Author:
Ava Eagle Brown spent her childhood in a poor and rural part of Jamaica. Attending school was a challenge and she often had to work instead, in order to pay for basic needs such as food. Only a compass based on inner strength carried her through adolescence, a period during which she experienced sexual abuse and incest. When she reached young adulthood she was even held at gunpoint – and then she decided to escape from Jamaica.
Rather than settle for the role of victim, a victim of her troubled past, Ava chose to turn her painful experiences into a new focus and purpose. She resurrected and became a stronger self, more resilient and self-reliant. She made peace with the inner demons haunting her past, choosing grace over anger and defeat instead. She still loves her native country Jamaica, she is still passionate and she has become a powerful voice in helping other people fight poverty and its many bad effects.
Ava’s style is authentic and unapologetic, and it quickly dives below surface level to discover what really needs to be fixed. Only by taking control of your mindset you will be able to achieve transformation. Her approach is empowering, she wants everybody to understand that the word IMPOSSIBLE really means I’M POSSIBLE. She aspires to inspire people to live the lives they truly want to live; lives of joy, peace, abundance and success. In short: the keynote speaker Ava Eagle Brown will help you find and be your best self.
Ava has coached entrepreneurs, CEOs, business leaders, writers as well as people who have lost their way. She had guided them into greater significance and greater self-esteem. Purpose in life is not just wealth and fame but rather identifying what really inspires you deep down. Thus significance is the true goal, and no matter what has happened to you, it is still possible to turn things around.

Brown was the ambassador for Evolve, which is a homelessness and community support charity that makes a real difference to 2000 people each and every year in and around London. Moreover, she is planning to start a charity called Jamaica Safe Home For Girls, which will seek to establish a residence for young girls, victims of abuse and poverty, who are in need of shelter and help. This cause is close to her heart, as she herself had nowhere to go when she wanted to escape from a very damaging home situation, when she was just a young girl growing up in Jamaica.
In 2017, our speaker Ava Eagle Brown published her book The Mango Girl, which portrays Ava’s journey from homelessness and sexual abuse to becoming a strong and self-reliant woman.
