Helping Victims Heal from the Trauma of Abuse for Over 25 Years
A percentage of all proceeds helps us to help victims heal from the trauma of abuse.
Every Item is Inspired with You in Mind
"Every statement piece (t-shirt, mug, hoodie, notebook, etc) on YearofYushima.net is inspired by my first book, "Picking Up the Pieces to 100 Broken Promises." We aim to inspire, motivate and empower through every event we host, the events that we attend and through every piece of clothing we create. We created a self help workbook to help you heal from interpersonal trauma, "The Companion Workbook to Picking Up the Pieces to 100 Broken Promises." Each item is a reflection of the Black experience, the female experience, the hope experience. It tells your story of struggle, success, pain and healing. Our goal is to help you heal so we offer free counseling with your purchase, Schedule Your Appointment Today.
Explore the collection and find the pieces that resonate with you, or bless someone else and make their day. May you find the peace, hope and healing that you deserve." Yushima Cherry Burks
What does Yushima mean?
The definition of Yushima is Japan is "Cherry Blossom: and in my ancestors native tongue, it means "Respect, Honor and Thankful", which symbolizes a new beginning, spring time and change. This is the Year of Yushima, for all of us! We are always evolving, changing and growing.
A Word from My Publisher
"In her book, Picking up the Pieces to 100 Broken Promises, Yushima lays herself bare, sharing some of her lived experiences and showing how they have shaped her life to date. Since the release of her book in 2020, Yushima has continued to excel in meeting her life’s goals. She has recently started her brand, Year of Yushima, which not only offers empowering wearable statement pieces, but also donates proceeds from sales towards helping others heal from trauma.
On her YouTube channel and through her social media posts, you can enjoy her bubbly, sometimes goofy personality. Luckily, you will also get to see that Yushima is all business, putting in the work and effort to promote healing." Tamarind Hill Publishing
