Tonya and I are friends from a past mastermind group. Recently, I watched (via Facebook) as her daughter teenage Faith stood up as an activist in her community, resulting in getting on the TODAY show. When Tonya and I talked about her coming on the show, I knew I wanted to ask her about Faith’s badassery. Prepare yourself - Faith’s story is going to blow you away!

Listen in to hear Tonya share:

  • How Faith was censored at school - and how she spoke up, stood up, and organized a protest to support Black history and denounce censorship
  • How Faith chose to show up after George Floyd’s death - resulting in getting on the Today show
  • Faith’s lesson to “just throw the rock” to start to create ripples of impact
  • How she cultivated confidence and built something from nothing by showing up as the person she wanted to become
  • Her motto around “don’t let the defeats define you”
  • Why it’s ok to turn a fun hobby into a business (it’s ok to make money doing fun things!)
