Testimonials

She gave us some real good things to consider.
— Tony, Student, Cornerstone Crossroads Academy
She kept it real with us, and I appreciated that!
— Ashley, Student. Cornerstone, Crossroads Academy
Earlina has spoken at the Metrocrest Chamber Business Expo Seminar the past two years. She brings high energy with her personable presentation. She has a true passion to help others realize their full potential.
— Mike Harris, Programs Director, Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce
The kids raved about you!
— Sara Strain, Activity Coordinator, Harmony School of Innovation
Earlina is an outstanding and gifted speaker. Her insight and enthusiasm, along with her informative and inspiring presentation, propelled our 2011 [E3] summer camp to the next level of success and empowered all of our youth who participated in our camp. The youth from our summer camp were from the Boys and Girls Clubs in Dallas; the directors from the Boys and Girls Clubs were also very excited to have Earlina share her wisdom with their students. Our entire organization was tremendously blessed!
— Leslie O’Hare, President, Leslie O’Hare Media
Yoga is a wonderful activity that can help counter these pressures. When children learn simple techniques for self-help, relaxation and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with more ease. We are appreciative to Earlina for bringing such a priceless resource to our girls whom we are teaching to be strong, healthy and empowered.
— Kimberely Clay, PhD, MPH, MSW, Executive Director, Sisterbration
