Speaker. Author. Entrepreneur. Believer.

  • My first and most prominent speaking experiences were and are in church. Throughout middle and high school, I held leadership positions that required me to speak, even closing that journey with my Salutatorian Address in front of hundreds of people at my high school graduation. God increased my platform even more in my collegiate years. During the summer of 2013, while I was interning at the Federal Reserve Bank, I had the chance to speak to a group of youth at a community center about banking, saving, and budgeting. I consider that my first official public speaking engagement. Since then, God has created space for me in many other capacities.

    My voice is a gift and it's critical to my assignment. God has granted me widespread knowledge, expertise, and experiences to share with others. It was never for me but for those connected to me. I don't take it lightly.
