Bathsheba, gave a riveting performance that genuinely illuminated a key identity-gap dynamic that exist between the older and younger generations. In just a few minutes she masterfully illustrated with verbal pictures, how younger people struggle to find their place, hit their stride and gain clarity about direction and purpose. From her compelling words and vivid delivery, the older were able to resonate with the struggle and better know how to relate to the young. Dr. Corinthia Boone, Chair of the Capital Region National Day of Prayer, and a representative of the "traditionalist" generation said Bathsheba's rendition "was just what we needed!"

Rev. Michael C. Worsley, Engagement Officer - World Vision

Bathsheba was a dynamic, thoughtful and authentic presenter and facilitator. Middle and high school girls can be a challenging crowd to engage with – but Bathsheba had no challenges here. She was energetic and enthusiastic, well aware of the fact that she sets the tone for the group of students. She disseminated invaluable information to our girls and had them actively participate in the learning process, teaching each other and coming to their own conclusions about the subject matter. Bathsheba’s energy was unmatched and her efforts were obvious – her energizing presentation style drew our girls in and I know that they learned something that morning. We are so grateful for her contributions to our mission to inspire ALL girls to be strong, smart & bold, so they become women who are healthy, educated & independent, and we look forward to partnering with her again in the future!

Christina M. Parrish, Program Director - Girls Inc DC

It had the students really analyze themselves internally and how people viewed them externally. It prepared them for their future by having them strengthen their views of themselves so that they could work past other people's expectations of them.

Sarah Wohler, 9th grade English Teacher

Her workshop was empowering. It helped me realize the cage I was trapped in and it also showed me how to break out. . . . Some cages were broken and we're given the opportunity to be freed. This by far was the best workshop I've ever been to.

Africa Jordan, 9th grade

. . . amazingly tailored to my school's demographics. She took the time to discuss the meanings of her poems with the students, bridging the gap between lyrical poetry in and out of the classroom; they could really apply what they had learned in school!

Anna Smunt (Teacher)

The students continue to talk about your workshops and look forward to you returning in January. I know your impact on their lives will be immeasurable for years to come! Thank you for your commitment to today's youth.
