Cassandra and Khamica from Meet My Melanin provided a narrative for our student that was engaging and inspiring. Their talk exposed us to the challenges and barriers that exist within professional sport and how their lived experiences have shaped their commitment and passion for social justice and racial inclusion.Thank you for teaching our students how to be seen, heard and known.
STARTS WITH ONE
Khamica and Cassandra spoke with youth who were participating in Starts With One (SWO)'s first-ever Black Excellence for Kids workshop. Khamica and Cassandra were capable of inspiring and engaging each one of these students, communicating their individual stories with passion and warmth. They spoke on difficult topics such as how they've persevered through physical and mental difficulties. The team at SWO was honoured to host them as guest speakers and would highly recommend them as motivational or inspirational speakers to any future event!
BROCK UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR
"Khamica and Cassandra are not only accomplished athletes, but eloquent, engaging, and inspiring public speakers. On topics ranging from women's empowerment to racial justice to the ins and outs of life as an elite athlete, they offered valuable insights and reflections in a way that connected with my students.
