Last Friday I attended a beautiful conference. This was the InterNational Prisoners Family Conference where I was the opening speaker of the final day. This last day was dedicated to Prison's Family Voice. I spoke about my life and the struggles of children of incarcerated parents. I do this to put a spotlight on these children as they're often in the shadows. After speaking, I received overwhelming love and support from the attendees. I even witnessed amazing, inspirational stories of the turn around of former prisoners lives. It's always refreshing to see people who value and care about the same things you care about. I'm so glad there's a conference like this where people can come together, discuss and initiate a change. Growth is so beautiful, whether it's within or simply around me.
Back when I brought the lab to the Girls Conference! Loved doing my experiment for them!
I had a great time at Big Brothers & Big Sisters' Girls Conference! The girls & their mentors seemed to really love my presentation as I related science to aspects of life. I hope the girls have a new found love for science & remember to be their own catalyst. Girls ROCK!
