Rassy: THE SPEAKER
Seen. Heard. Felt.
Though it took me a long time to learn how to truly express myself, at a very young age, and thanks to my religious upbringing, I learned all the skills I needed to speak well. I realized that those skills, coupled with the imaginative, creative way my mind worked, helped me make an impact every time I opened my mouth.
I began to notice that when I spoke, people not only heard me, they felt me.
I found that I was allegorically inclined, thanks to my love of reading and writing, so I became a natural storyteller, able to weave thoughts and messages together in a way that was not only easy to grasp, but it left the choice of the takeaway to the listener.
In this compartmentalized society that we live in, new ideas can seem radical and especially dangerous. However, we still have the burden of how to solve the many problems we face today like poverty, racism, sexism and all the things that divide us! We know that as people, as nations, as the collective world, we have to shift our mindset, but it’s SO uncomfortable!
Sometimes the easiest way to start is through a subtle shift in perspective, while holding a safe space to process, integrate and release our discomfort. That is what I, as a speaker, bring to the table.
