As someone who gets paid to talk for a living, you’d think I’d have so much to say; but I am beyond speechless after receiving the "Inspire 815" award from WREX-TV last week.

I am so blessed and thankful for the women who supported and encouraged me to start this campaign when there were people in my life who didn’t believe in the concept.

When I felt like no one was listening or that no one cared about our message, these wonderful women were there every step of the way to remind me that we WILL make a difference- Tina Kohs Jacobs, Princilla Mendez, Tori Smith, Annētta McBain, Rachel Cadie, Wendy Epperly-Miller, Gregory Filmordie Yokley and Tiki Huey- you are MY light in the darkness that was my existence here in Rockford for the last three years.

Thank you for believing not just in me, but in yourself, to be the brains, beauty and the voice of #RockYourBodyRockford. Let’s keep this going!

THIS SELF-LOVE CAMPAIGN IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH 97ZOK OR TOWNSQUARE MEDIA.
