My passion is fueled by faith and incredible hard work
In 2008, Dr. Portia founded a society known as the RoyalTea Ladies Society—a social and empowerment group for women. Her organization exists to serve women who desire to advance their business goals and give back to the community.
RoyalTea Ladies have since supported local charities and non-profit organizations. They have raised thousands of dollars in donations and are currently serving over twenty families. They also render charity services to needy women, children with autism, and many other worthy causes.
More importantly, Dr. Portia is a super active RoyalTea Lady due to her interest in serving, supporting, and advocating for mothers of autistic children.
Dr. Portia’s first son, Zachariah, saved to save, was diagnosed with autism, which affected his speech. He was just two and a half years old. Her vibrant, intelligent, and handsome little boy has since faced the challenges of life with autism.
This development devastated the entire family, but Dr. Portia and her husband encouraged themselves and decided to focus on God’s faithfulness, Zachariah’s happiness, and the therapists’ dedication to help. So, rather than giving up on their lovely son, they committed to helping him handle the challenges of a special needs diagnosis.
Moved with compassion, Dr. Portia started educating herself on how to help mothers with children with special needs. And by God’s grace, love, patience, and determination, Dr. Portia and her family have been able to weather the storm until today.
Although Zachariah still doesn’t speak fluently, Dr. Portia is grateful. She gladly commented “[Zachariah] is polite, potty-trained, can write his name, do basic mathematics and gives me the best hugs in the world.” Currently, Zachariah is in his teens, he is happy, prosperous, and progressive. He is presently in Middle School.
Consequently, Dr. Portia’s experience over the years of caring for Zachariah was what spurred her commitment and selfless desire to provide support and coaching for mothers of children with special needs.
