youth workshops

It was truly powerful. There were multiple "themes" that our students took away- advocate for themselves, know their rights, be in control of themselves, to manage their emotions and in doing so, maintain their power. You were able to deliver these messages in an especially effective way because both your life experiences & because you obviously cared.
