Women that Soar is looking for Overcomers in South Dallas

Women that Soar in partnership with Reuben Cannon Productions and TigerEye Films presents Overcomers.  This empowering and life transforming series is seeking qualified applicants for its premiere season.

Overcomers is an unscripted, pre-eminent docu-series that is like none other. It explores the raw, real-life stories of single mothers who have chosen to rise above their current circumstances and fight for a better future for themselves and their children.

These stories are hard-hitting, authentic, uncensored and powerful. Each story will inspire viewers to never give up, no matter the obstacles or trials they face.

Women That Soar, a Dallas-based women’s platform and production company that seeks to empower women, believe these fearless mother’s and everyday sheroes should be lauded and given a hand-up in their pursuit of the sometimes-elusive American Dream. We believe these women should be provided with the necessary tools, resources and opportunities that will help them overcome, SOAR beyond their wildest dreams. We believe overcomers are not unsung heroes. They are warriors!

The company is seeking qualified applicants for Season 1 who are ready to share their story, enhance their life through education, mentorship, coaching and ownership! Do you or someone you know meet the following criteria?

  1. Must be a minority, single mother.
  2. Must be head of household.
  3. Must be employed.
  4. Must be 25 years of age or older.
