Preparing for my story has taken over 30 years to tell. I thought about going on a detox … trying to piece together things that I’ve done to myself ;; that I wish I didn’t. But every time I come to a solution, it leads me right back to here.. sharing with all of you. I looked at the clock every five minutes for three days straight before this moment. I laid in bath salt baths for three hours practicing my tone of voice and holding in my composure of nerves. I watched myself in the mirror at my non-verbal cues… eyes, lips, smile. I was beyond prepared for this moment. The fear was overwhelming & made me sick to my stomach. I wasn’t sure if I had a throw up or pee myself. Expressions on people’s faces while they watch… I was sharing something personal, very private. This was the grand ballroom, filled with students and professionals who are eager to learn.

You’re probably thinking oh, there’s not that many seats in this room. Well this was just the practice room, to warm you up before you prepare self in front of all of the people #tedxdetroit My voice echoed throughout the stadium. I choked up the first two times and then I realized I better get it right this time … #reallife you don’t get another shot. This was my grand opportunity to share my story, and I wasn’t going to let it back down, I am overly prepared-it’s just in my nature #bossbabe i’ve premiered my TEDx video on YouTube. You can click the link in my bio to watch the premiere at its schedule time. #motivationalspeaker

When you share something personal about yourself, there’s always these nervous feelings that people are going to judge you based on what you’ve been through. I try to practice what I preach, the only person whose opinion matters is your faith in God. I have to be vulnerable by letting the world guide me. I left my city, Detroit to pursue international dreams. I’m a superstar where I come from. Because I’m a believer and a mover/shaker in personal development. I trust that my mission will allow me to influence people around the world through my story 🥂👏🏻 i’m excited, yet nervous to share my content of this memorable day. But there’s no better time now than ever. #tedxdetroit #welcometothebigleagues

Now … muahahahahhahaha we get to bring you back to the start of things … A monumental moment in my life, I wasn’t even expecting this @masonicdet where @tedxdetroit was hosted in November. I’m going to take you ——- on a journey to my never before seen experience as a speaker. This happens to be on my brother’s birthday November 6, and four days after my birthday, November 2. Ironically, I hosted a beautiful Brazilian goddess in the warehouse for Day of the dead. I can’t tell you which one was more crazy LOL because they were both very fluidity 🍃 just gooooo with the flow — I want to shout out my speech coach, she was incredible – Janet from @truedepth agency – thank you charlie from @curvedetroit terry, nick, the whole gang! #tedx congratulations on the new venue @fordfield 🔝💃🏻👌 special thank you for trusting in me @morgannamusic

I’m doing it, facing the world and everything that Has to offer💪🏼💪🏼 #worldclass Detroit has prepared me. I am influenced by the city… my story wouldn’t be the same If I wasn’t provided the opportunity to share my life on #tedxdetroit there’s only one thing that I can do with this power, Harness the feeling ❤️ I’m really excited to premiere my speech with everyone.

The title of my speech, 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😲😲😲🦉 This speech is about my fairytale living with this condition. I’m a statistic, the 1% that got out. The one-percent who uses everything I have in my tool belt. I should have rested and conformed to what society thinks I should be doing with myself. I love therapy, I need therapy… But it just so happens to be that social media is my channel. I reach more people by touching their hearts of the lives that they live through my stories. I hold these little gems close to my heart because the moment I started sharing, people from different parts of the world started opening up to me. Started reaching out to me, asking me – what should I do? How do I get through this? There’s no right or wrong answer. I can’t make everyone happy by sorting their problems. I’m focused on only myself and that seems to be doing enough. If I can do it, you can do it. I’ve never open the door to my biological family, because I’m not ready to know what’s on the other side. You think I haven’t kept the demons off long enough; without fear, its a mind game. I’m terrified to know any history. I know enough to make me trip, and until I’m ready to lay my bed-those skeletons will remain in the closet. When I’m ready to go on my spiritual journey, opening up to what happened to me in the past that has made me the person that I am today. You will know about it. But that door remains closed. ‘Not open for business’ until then, let’s hear the story. #tedx
