Barefooted Soul is
an inspirational book that exalts a powerful voice
from Imelda Roberts' own life. She speaks for
the over a billion children living in poverty,
countless victims of abuse, prejudice, the millions
challenged by immigration, and as a testament
to living a dream.
Unbound from her insurmountable past, a new path
to success was forged in America’s freedom.
A poor child, a homeless scholar, an abused woman,
and a maid in America cocooned as a statistic,
now blossomed in one incredible journey of hopes
and dreams made possible by Imelda’s faith
and a strong belief that the human soul can overcome
any life’s adversities.
From bare feet to the bravest of
hearts, Imelda’s journey also reveals the
shared experience of millions of immigrants including
over 2.3 million Filipinos in the US. Her incredible
journey of courage exemplifies the strength of
the human spirit and one that crosses race, gender,
nationality and religion.

any place we have ever been on earth.
