Gripping title huh? I did not come up with it. That is the creative genius that is Najda Khan.

I meet some amazing woman May 2019 in Kenya. One such woman was Najda Khan. I loved listening to her speak and I thought her life was a book I could devour.

I am a product of all of my stories just as you are. My stories make me a better teacher, public speaker, coach and mental health advocate. I am not ashamed of my story, I tell various chapters often.

Listen in. Let me know your thoughts.
