Tyra Little is the Host of Pressure Points Unpacked Podcast, a vision that she received last year on the seventh anniversary of her son’s murder. Upon declaring to the Lord that she would no longer be silent the Lord gave her vision for the podcast.
Tyra has experienced multiple trauma’s in life and she has been determined to see herself as a victor instead of victim. By keeping God first as well as seeking counseling she learned that it’s necessary to examine, and process life issues from a emotional, spiritual, mental and physical level.
On her journey to healing she discovered part of her purpose is to share her continued healing process in hopes to assist others in their process.
Robert grew up in Greenville before heading out of state for college and then law school. He returned to South Carolina in 2000 when he moved to Columbia.
As a lawyer, Robert represented men on death row in South Carolina and elsewhere. This work taught Robert a great deal about the effects of poverty and trauma on children. Robert also recognized in his clients’ stories the missed opportunities to help them when they were young. This recognition ignited in Robert a passion for working with children.
After a decade of practicing law, Robert became a teacher in Richland One. He spent seven years in the classroom teaching at Hand Middle School and Dreher High School. During this time Robert also co-founded a non-profit that provides long-term, intensive support to students and their families and advocates for public education. Robert is now the full-time executive director of this non-profit, Richland County Public Education Partners.
Robert was elected in October 2021 to fill an at-large position vacancy on the Richland One school board.
