Great time serving as a Speaker (Internet Safety) and Panelist (Empowering Youth) at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion

Excellent time presenting at DigiGirlz Jamaica!  Empowering girls to believe in themselves and think about a career in technology.  (Yes, that’s me in the red shirt!…I look pretty young, don’t I?)

Microsoft gave my book “Always Believe” to  the DigiGirlz participants in Seattle.

During NBA Player, Jason Richardson’s conference I ran into one of my all time favorite Detroit Lion’s Players – Lomas Brown.  I motivated young girls to believe in themselves, empowered them to make wise choices while using the Internet and to  never give up on their dreams.


I recently rode 300 Miles for Make A Wish Foundation.  This is Christian, my wish child – he is Awesome! If Christian and his family can make it…I have No Excuse!

BAMA and Miami Dolphins Greats – Don McNeal and Tony Nathan sporting their “NoExcuses” Shirts.   Another BAMA Star and General Manager of the Baltimore Ravens, Ozzie Newsome (this was right before the Super Bowl, thus the serious look!)

One of my Favorite Recording Artists Dwele. Started working at a Pizza Place in Detroit, Made No Excuses…and now he is living the life of his dreams. No Excuses!


Invited to speak at a Mother’s Day Brunch, encouraging women to “start living the lives of their dreams” I had the honor of meeting this mom who is 100 years young! She is an inspiration to us all!
