My Speaking opportunities

👋 Hi! 

Over the past several years I have had the pleasure and privilege of getting to speak numerous times about my educational experience and my desired impact on the world.

Not all of my conversations were recorded, but if you want to listen to me and learn a little bit more about my story, click on the different podcasts and interviews below to listen!

Also, if you are interested in interviewing me or just talking to learn more about Black Life, Blue World, what it means to be different, and the change I dream to make in the world, go here to connect!
