TedxRva & Me

2:10 PM Keenya Kelly 0 Comments

Hey Everyone! 
January 31st, I received the opportunity to speak at an event here in Richmond called TedxRVA. 
I had TWO minutes to talk about my cause, so of course I decided to talk about my prior self-esteem issues and how that helped me birth Return of the Curls. It was quite the amazing opportunity, and I LOVE to talk...so to cut my talk down to TWO minutes was like ummm yea right, but Praise God I only went for 1 minute and 50 seconds. 

My thoughts were, it doesn't matter if I win, I just want to be able to share my story and passion with people in Richmond, whom probably have never heard of me. (And they hadn't)
I was not selected to go onto the major event in March that night, but I figured hey, you never know who is in the room that night that may be interested in what I have to offer. 
WELL...after the event I have spoken to so many people that really enjoyed my short speech and now I have possible opportunities to go further and share more of my story. 
Check out the video above!!

...Keep it Curly
