Growing up, I was shy and quiet in public. In 7th grade though, when I joined theater, that all changed. I discovered I have a passion in public speaking. And when I was 15, my enthusiasm for speaking developed an urgent sense of purpose when I realized the need for open and honest conversations about self-esteem, mental health, and relationships.
I didn't expect the outpouring of support I received when I directed my first workshop for a group of 8th grade students.
Today, I have delivered over 70 workshops to schools all over New England. This summer, I directed my 5th week-long summer program, and I've spoken on powerful platforms including TEDx, Huffington Post, NBC Boston, and more.
The movement I created has helped thousands of people achieve confidence and body-positivity, and I am ready to help even more people by continuing to speak on news/media platforms, at conferences, organizations, and more.
