As a first speaking engagement, I was invited to share my story with the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Luncheon, hosted by the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati, on April 5, 2017. Notably, this would be my first time standing before an audience, sharing my story of triumph over trauma. The attendees were moved to a standing ovation by my ability to shine my light into dark spaces, and my gift of radiating joy while traveling the healing journey.
