The Veil Of Victory
. About the Author: Yorli Huff was born on August 7, 1968, in Chicago, Illinois, to Jansilyne Berthania Huff and Samuel Huff. She has an older brother, Samuel Louis Huff III, and a younger sister, Amber Lizette Walker. Despite a difficult childhood, Huff was an excellent student, and that dedication helped land her a position in 1992 in Chicago with the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department as a Special Drug Agent at the tender age of twenty-four. One of the few African-American undercover agents in the task force, Huff excelled at her work, but her rise to the top brought with it racism and discrimination. In 1997, after trying unsuccessfully to deal with that discrimination on her own, Huff made history when she filed a lawsuit against the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department, a battle which took her eleven years to win. An entrepreneur at heart, Huff is the owner of Just For You Balloons, a gift-basket company which she established in 1992, and the owner of Executive Dry Cleaners, Inc., which she established in 2008. Also in 2008, Yorli Huff became the Founder, President, and CEO of Engendering Strength, Inc., a company devoted to inspiring and empowering women. In addition to her various companies, Huff began working with Blue Cross Blue Shield in 2006, and was recently promoted to Senior Fraud Investigator.
This book tells a story of a young black women’s amazing journey, and triumph over child sexual, spousal abuse, and severe work discrimination. Yorli finds herself in an exciting career as an undercover drug agent in a true to life “21 Jumpstreet” style elite drug unit.
