CHANGEMAKER PROFILE:

REBECCA CONTRERAS


In October of 2021, former American Bible Society Board

member and AvantGarde CEO Rebecca Contreras released

her new book, Lost Girl: From the Hood to the White House

Amazon and Barnes & Noble, tells Rebecca’s inspiring

story of how her grit, determination, and faith helped her

founding leader of a thriving HR consulting firm serving 15

federal government agencies.

born into a poverty-stricken family with a drug-addicted

mother and abusive family members. I was on the verge of

All hope is not lost—even for a seemingly lost girl.”
