Based on the acronym C.H.A.M.P.I.O.N.S. (Character, Habits, Accountability, Motivation, Perspective, Integrity, Opportunity, Network, and Service), the authors show how challenges and obstacles can be overcome. Many authors include the difference one person, or several people, made in their lives, also how something greater than themselves intervened offering them a hand up to where they are today.

Creator of the C.H.A.M.P.I.O.N.S. complication, Diana Aldereguia writes, “This book was created to honor mentors. Our authors show the young women who will be attending Memories in a Mansion Leadership Academy (MIMLA) and our other readers that there is always hope. Regardless of your walk of life, no dream is too large to make a reality as long as you trust, have faith in yourself and take the necessary action to make it happen.” She added, “My own book and program, ‘Memories in a Mansion’ was born from my desire to make a difference in the lives of young women. To help them heal from the trauma they endured from not having a stable family environment, of having been shuffled from one house to another, and in many cases being physically and/or emotionally abused. In a phrase, their sense of NOT BEING ENOUGH! My effort to heal others, and the process of individually interviewing each author and listening to his or her story has served in my own healing process and my feeling of ‘not being enough’ as well.”
