While growing up I began to understand that “ you are your strongest advocate”. While connecting and listening to Kellina’s story you will gain a new perspective for the deaf and hard of hearing brothers and sisters.
Kellina is a Canadian who discovered me while speaking on stage on Clubhouse ( a drop-in audio chat app) and is the first to book with me from there! She is a young entrepreneur who loves to help people with their personal growth and educate others about the deaf community. Little do people know Kellina is actually a hard of hearing person. She became deaf at the age of 4 and recently graduated with a psychology degree and is now starting her own online coaching business while finishing working on her book! Today you’ll get to hear her story and how she overcame many hurdles to be the confident powerful woman she is blossoming into! We are rooting for all her new endeavors and here are some links to continue to support Kellina!
