In 2014, she launched The Speak Life Tour™ as a catalyst for youth leaders through a performing and visual arts platform. The Speak Life Tour™ program redefines the peer-to-peer mentoring approach by empowering youth to strengthen one another. SLT™ focuses on training and developing youth leaders between the ages of 10-18 years old. The 2nd tier of the program trains young adults (18-30 years old) to facilitate community engagement projects. In 2015, she took the Tour on the road and traveled with the artist team to Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania, D.C., and Atlanta. In 2016, she added North Carolina and Florida to the SLT™ travel roster.
