Profile:
Andrea Hendrick was ready to skip the country with her son, but then realised that her 9 year sentence at Pollsmoor Prison, for a drug dealing charge, needed to be faced! She didn’t deserve to go there! She didn’t belong there. People like her didn't go to prison, especially not Pollsmoor! She was angry, cheeky, felt better than everyone, and at one stage got beaten up so badly by the other women in the general cell, that she was removed and put into a cold, lonely single cell with just a blanket, no mattress.

Andrea had hit rock-bottom. "In order for me to deal with my issues, God needed to remove me from society and make me work through them one by one." After serving just over 4 years, and receiving a few years taken off for amnesty she was released in April 2006 on parole and started to put my life back together. It was a long and hard road…some people still treat her like her crime.
 
Starting at the age of 9, Andrea endured many negative factors that led up to this event in her life, including sexual abuse, losing her father, giving a child up for adoption, attempting suicide twice and barely surviving a very traumatic and verbally abusive relationship, not to mention her agonising short 9 month marriage. But all of these events have moulded her into who she is today - a successful business woman and inspirational keynote speaker, nominated for a Business Achievement Award from the BWA in 2015.

To date, Andrea has done a number of interviews and presentations for institutions such as CapeTalk, Heart FM, Tygerberg 104FM, KykNET, and CCFM. She has aslo been featured in FairLady Magazine and Kuier Magazine.
 
Andrea's interests include doing hair, cooking, entertaining and gardening.

Synopsis:
PRESENTATION by Andrea Hendrick

Andrea shares her experience of “Life After Prison” as well as “Breaking the bars to your own personal Prison” in the form of interviews and inspirational & motivational talks to corporate companies and other interest groups.
 
Andrea is busy writing her book detailing her life, beginning when she was 9 yrs old. Through a number of specific messages, she illustrates that one does not need to go to prison in order to be in one. We build our own walls and in order to grow into what we are destined for, one needs to remove each brick, one at a time.

So after surviving 2 attempts at suicide, giving her daughter up for adoption, a failed marriage, losing her hair salon business and eventually ending up in one of Cape Town’s most overcrowded prisons, she has turned her life around.
