On April 14th and 15th I was hosted by North Carolina A & T and its REMBA Conference. On the evening of the 14th I gave a talk, read excerpts from PHD to PhD and did a book signing. On the 15th I performed to a great audience at the REMBA conference. It was truly a blessing to be received with so much love. Many thanks to Pam Moye, Dr. Tyra Turner-Whittaker and Dr. Geleana Drew Alston for the opportunity to perform in the midst of healing vibrations!

We are coming out of the shadows!

What a wonderful email message I received. I met this beautiful person after one of my PHD to PhD OneWomanShows. I am removing the name for privacy reasons. Confirmation that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing:
Dr. E,
I hope you’re well! My name’s ___. I’ve attached our correspondence from 2014 to this email. I wrote to you in 2014 to let you know how much your book inspired me, because I was also a drug addict and sex worker who got clean and started college in recovery. Well, would you believe it – three years later and I am studying at Yale University where was accepted last year. I just started my second semester. I think it would be so cool to get a PhD and become an expert in my field just like you. I mean, I certainly was an expert in that other stuff back in the day. Haha. I hope you are well and take care, Dr. E!
