She also wrote her story in a book Perfectly Flawed: A Veterans Journey from Homeless to Hero.  Sixteen-year-old Janae Sergio walks the streets of Hollywood, California terrified and focused on how to survive while avoiding attempts to be lured into drug addiction and sex trafficking. After making a life-changing decision to join the U.S. Navy, she experienced yet another petrifying adventure when at just nineteen she was amongst the first service members to be forward deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. A war that would go on to last 20 years. Some would label her a hero for her contributions to preserving freedom around the world. But most importantly, Janae became the hero she always needed for herself. She went on to become a successful businesswoman where she was recently selected as the Chief of Air Force Lodging managing a portfolio of 88 Air Force Hotels. And after gaining a large social media platform she turned her childhood dream into a reality by opening an online fashion boutique where she helps women step out of their comfort zones and embrace their own “flaws” as what makes them unique. Janae’s perseverance has been a source of inspiration for millions of people around the world. This story will have you reflecting on the hero you became for yourself.
