Beginning my professional public speaking career at 17 years old after starting a library in Ghana, I have since developed and used this skill to make my acquired knowledge, training, and education accessible to those who need my services most.

Public Speaking

I am usually brought in to speak on...

How can governments, organizations, researchers, etc. engage with Indigenous Peoples in a way that respects our self-determination?

What is anti-racism? What are tools of anti-racism (i.e. data collection, policy)? How can a space or individual be anti-racist?

How can youth be engaged meaningfully in policy and decision making? What do youth need to do to get into these spaces and make bold moves?

What is critical inclusion and diversity? What is required for inclusive (and not tokenizing) spaces?

How can we bring community activism into the boardroom? What can youth do

as activists?

What does professional development look like for the future of work? How can we pay for post-secondary? Or travel as a student?

How do we recognize divers ways of knowing in the energy sector and in sustainability discourse? What is the significance of the Duty to Consult in Canada?

How do we create policy? What are different lenses we need to employ when creating policy?

How can a student internationalize their education? What are the benefits of doing so? What are some general steps one needs to take to embark on this?
