A S.O. What! Success Curriculum for Anyone with Obstacles OR Excuses

Immediately after publishing my first book, Life After Birth: A Memoir of Survival and Success as a Teenage Mother, educators asked me if there was a curriculum that accompanied my book. They told me that their students from elementary through high school students couldn’t put the book down and that told me that they were learning. I knew this was an opportunity for students to learn some very specific lessons about life and overcoming obstacles.

Then I was asked to create a college course for my alma mater to teach life skills and dealing with change. As an adjunct professor, I used my story and journey to, through, and after college to help them deal with their challenges and set themselves up for successful careers and lives. Many of my students reported it was the best class they had ever taken and that they wished they could have taken it sooner. Today, the contents of that course are available for all college students anywhere.

My experiences as a student, as a corporate executive, as a college professor, as an entrepreneur, and as a woman pushed me to create online courses available to anyone. Through S.O. What! YOUniversity, I offer online courses to help people discover their purpose, conquer their fears, pursue their dreams, and create the S.O. What! Success they deserve.

My passion is helping youth and young adults realize success no matter what obstacles they face. I am most excited about how the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum has improved literacy levels, motivation, and post-secondary education aspirations in some of our most vulnerable students. This includes elementary life skills curriculum and middle school curriculum. As a youth keynote speaker, author, and success coach, I love using life’s challenges to provide youth and young adults useful strategies around the country.

I’m a college motivational speaker that gets results! My extensive leadership and involvement experience in high school and in college, as a teen mother, laid the foundation for helping me to realize her S.O. What! Success- success in spite of any challenges. After publishing my memoir, I left a 15-year corporate career with the Memphis Grizzlies, ServiceMaster, and FedEx to speak full-time using my experience and unique ability to connect with youth and young adults to help them excel in college, careers, and life. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, I also work as a empowerment speaker for women.
