Powell was chosen to participate because of her first-hand knowledge of the subject presented. Along with countless motivational appearances on the subject, she has also written “The Other Woman,” a bold and emotional memoir based on a sixteen-line rap written by the daughter of an addict. In this honest portrayal of addiction, Nette loses herself in the stories of her father's struggles. She vividly recounts his memories of the crack houses and prison cells he once frequented, and openly recalls how that other world stole so many years from Bruce Callis and his family.
Powell's testimony of growing up with a father addicted to drugs and being labeled "at-risk", "broken" and "defeated" is a powerful message. Most notably, in April 2012, Powell delivered a persuasive speech about the criminalization of addiction that won the Interstate Oratory competition, the nation’s oldest speaking competition.
