Crystal Danielle Ford was born and raised in Bronx, NY. She was the only child of a single mother who raised her to be strong, smart, independent and outspoken. In her teens Crystal developed a passion for writing and public speaking through an organization called Young Women's Voices. While in this organization she wrote and performed poetry throughout New York City.
At the ripe age of 20 Crystal herself became a single mom, forcing her to push her education aside to provide for her family. Shortly after the birth of her daughter, Crystal lost her mother to colon cancer. Alone without a support system and a young child to raise, Crystal found herself doing what was necessary to provide.
By 2009 Crystal ended up in an abusive relationship. She hit rock bottom in a town where she knew no one but her abuser. She was without hope and afraid for her life and the life of her daughter. It was at that point that she did the only thing that she could think of. It was the one thing she vowed many years before that she would never do; she prayed. She vowed that if God would save her from her situation she would give her life to him. That was the turning point in which things began to change for her. She made friends who quickly became family. Through her faith and her newfound family she was able to escape a situation that threatened to end her life.
As her confidence and faith grew she returned to school and began a career in Information Governance. She also showed appreciation for her blessings by giving back through food drives, clothing drives and adopt a family projects. Though she was in a much better place, the passion that she had as a youth for speaking and writing never died. Crystal knew that there was a calling for her to use her life experiences and her passion to help others. In 2015 with the desire to impact lives even more, Crystal began a Vlog affectionately known as "Moments with Crystal". Through this platform she encouraged others to pursue their faith and their passion. The Vlog quickly gained momentum with followers all over the world. However, in 2016 Crystal was in a life changing car accident that shook her faith to the core, sparking the abrupt end to
"Moments with Crystal".
Fast forward to the end of 2017--while struggling with her faith, Crystal's passion to speak, teach and encourage haunted her almost daily. As she sat quietly she audibly heard in her spirit "You are greater than the sum of your broken pieces". It was not only an affirmation, but a clarion call to let women who are struggling know that despite the adversities of life not only can they accomplish their purpose, but win in a world that expects them to lose.
In 2018 Unbroken LLC was born. It began with encouraging people through Instagram posts. It has since expanded to a Facebook group, motivational speaking, life coaching, and teachings on how to become the best version of themselves.
Crystal Danielle has adopted the title of Empowerment Ambassador. Her goal is to use every opportunity to teach every woman how to live their best life now.
