Out of the many hats I wear, I think this one fits the best. It's "all my life lessons" meets "connecting with & motivating the crowd" meets "performing on the stage as me." Whether it's sharing about my own path to quit Corporate America and follow my dreams or the power I found in authenticity as an Out Black Queer woman in Hollywood, I have crafted an interactive and candid storytelling adventure for many audiences. Speaking events include giving the keynote for Avalara's company-wide Pride Celebration and returning to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to deliver the key address for the Homecoming Black Alumni-Student Dinner.
Janora, you were amazing! Thank you for being such a great energy and sharing your story. Folks are sending us messages about how needed your message felt. I can’t thank you enough for just speaking so transparently
