RPF: Wow, you're an Author now, how does it feel?
Miss. Qua: Honestly it still doesn’t seem real (laughing)
RPF: Trust me, I know the feeling, its so surreal!
RPF: So, what/who inspired you to write a book?
Miss. Qua: Jesus first, then Myself. I felt I needed to do this to complete my healing process. I also wanted to reach as many people as I could, to let them know they are not alone.
RPF: That's amazing, you truly are an inspiration! So, the title, please explain...
Miss. Qua: (Smiling) Thank you! Well, triumphs means victory and of course everyone knows what tribulations are. So, my title is a reflection of the victories I’ve won in the midst of my heartache and troubled times.
RPF: Unstoppable and destined to win!
"Some women are lost in the fire. Some women are built from it."
Miss Qua: (Laughing) Yes, thank you!
RPF: What was one of the most interesting things you learned about yourself or gained after writing this book?
Miss. Qua: I realized I had forgot how broken I was, and it gave me a piece of appreciation for myself and to not be so hard on myself.

RPF: What is your Profession now?
Miss. Qua: Hairstylist and Salon Owner
RPF: No where near what you wanted to be as a child, why the change?

RPF: Who inspires you?
Miss. Qua: Tyler Perry, Taraji P Henson, and anyone that sees the good in me.
RPF: This is one of my favorite parts, please share a fun fact about yourself that no one knows...
Miss. Qua: I love to sew and craft anything. (laughing)
RPF: Wow, interesting! I will be looking for a blanket or something crafty soon! (laughs) Well, what's next for Miss. Qua?
Miss. Qua: I want to start traveling and speaking about my book to help others mend broken places and build or create healthy foundations.
