HEY, I'm Latoya Whitfield!
I know we are just getting to know each other, but would you believe that my hands would get sweaty and my heart would start racing before school presentations? Would you believe that I used " shyness" as a defense mechanism to not follow my dreams? Now would you believe that I spoke this life I have now into existence?
Oh yes! You better believe it. Now at the time, I didn't know that I was writing my future because I was simply joking around with colleagues.
For a year, I went into my coworkers offices pretending to be on stage doing a motivational speech. I had all of these innovative ideas, but yet my superiors didn't utilize the creativity. So I used that opportunity to present it to them.
I loved people and I just wanted to see them be great. I was inspiring people to believe in themselves. Little did I know that I was speaking to my future self. Exactly two years later, there I was being asked to show up for news interviews, podcast interviews, and speaking engagements.
My experiences have shaped me to be a voice for the woman that that didn’t believe in herself or stopped believing. I see who you are and who you can become!
