VoyageLA Interview

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Educate Empower Lead – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
I am a diversity consultant. I facilitate trainings, workshops, and conferences about the importance of inclusion, culture competence, and diversity. Because it’s my area of expertise I have a passion for educating, and empowering individuals to always consider culture. We live in a very diverse world, so we must look at situations from a different set of culture lens other than our own. That is the only way we are going to get a different perspective.

What sets me apart is that my approach is very authentic, raw and uncut. I talk about situations and circumstances that many people are afraid to discuss. I share personal insight on my life and struggles I have encounter growing up in a predominantly lower social economic environment. I tell my audience you have to be comfortable being uncomfortable that is when the real growth begins.
