Inspiration in trying times can be hard to come by and Jessica “Jessi” Purdy’s journey may be just the right boost we all need to take hold of our own narrative, our unique story.

On June 14th @7pm Woodbridge residents at  Fox Hill RunForest View, Evergreen East, Evergreen Forest and Cloverleaf Gardens can hear Jessica sharing her own experience of going from being trapped to reclaiming the life she had always wanted when the Woodbridge Public Library presents an online discussion program entitled “You Are The Author of Your Own Story.” Click on this link now to register for this free event and on the day before the event you’ll receive the Zoom meeting information by email.

The stories she shares center on her identity as a transwoman who lived in the closet of masculinity into her 40s.  As we journey with her through the times she allowed others and society to define her we begin to recognize similarities in our own stories.  Authoring ones own story can potentially usher in the birth of joy and freedom.

You’ll find joy in the comfort of a new home right here on’s Apartment Locator page where New Jersey’s premier residential communities reside year round.
