This past weekend, I had the ultimate pleasure of being interviewed by Sherri Shepherd of “The View”. She came to Chicago to host the 5th Annual First Ladies Health Luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Sherri hosted her own version of “The View”-Chicago Style, where I got a chance to tell others my story and about my work with The Bleeding Heart Project. It truly was an honor and an amazing experience to stand among women whom one day I hope to join.
Many may not know this but I also do public speaking. While I love blogging, I have bigger goals that I’m working towards which include being an author and eventually hosting my own tv show like the ladies above. So not only was it my chance to inspire others with my story but is was my turn to be inspired.
The legendary Rev. Willie Barros of Rainbow P.U.S.H. was in attendance. She is so adorable I had to get a picture.Minister Darius Brooks preformed and brought the house down! All in all it was an amazing afternoon. To see more pictures from the even check out our Facebook Page here.
Thanks to The American Heart Association for the opportunity, You guys will forever be near and dear to my heart!
