I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to be a guest on Black Teen Empowerment Radio with Scotty Reid and R. Lee Gordon.

I had a great time speaking at the financial empowerment event for Become N.E.W. yesterday and apparently they had a great time as well.
Shay, you did an excellent job. Your presentation was lively, informative, and funny! You have great energy and it comes through in your work. I would love to get a copy of your power point presentation. Please keep in touch cuz a sister gotta stay on course!
