SPEAK FIRM, EVEN WHEN YOUR VOICE SHAKES.
Why i speak
My path as a nontraditional student includes me earning my high school diploma at 25, and working through to my MEd and a seat at the table at 28. I am passionate about sharing my journey because it is not an uncommon one. As I said in a 2014 keynote: "By speaking up and speaking out, we can bring a voice to the voiceless to promote equity, to promote inclusion, and to welcome everyone to the table."
