Clients’ Testimonials

Your talk was just what I was hoping for after our phone conversation a few days before the Student Leadership Conference. Everyone in your audience was especially impressed with your humility combined with candor. Your story of reaching new and greater understanding of the importance of diversity was a powerful message of hope, as well as new insights.” — Howard T. Prince II, Ph.D., Clinical Professor, University of Texas

Seconde, we cherish the gifts of your wisdom and journey that you shared with us. Thanks for visiting us on “sacred” ground in the territory of our collective spirits. It was a special two days!”

Joanne F. DeMark, Ph.D., Leadership Development Specialist, Western Washington University

Ms. Nimenya, Thank you so much for coming and sharing with our students. One of our goals we established for our school is that every student feel a sense of belonging at Bella Vista. We have a long way to go, but I know you have impacted hundreds of our students to see themselves as unique and wonderful as they are. Hopefully they also see that they need to accept every other individual in the same way – like you say, in the end, we are all the same more than we are different; we want to be accepted for who we are.”

Peggy Haskins, Principal, Bella Vista High School – Sacramento, CA

Dear Seconde, Thank YOU for your great presentation and compassionate interaction with my students! I asked my students for some feedback and here is what came up: “Seconde was able to understand and appreciate students’ comments and took a collective “we” approach to our conversation about race and other identity constructs aimed at developing dialogue. Seconde’s style of presenting validated the variety of perspectives people brought to our discussion. She was able to hold space for discomfort and waited for us to be brave enough to say something, but she did so in a way that was relaxed and compassionate that made everyone feel like they had something to contribute and something at stake in the conversation.” 

Karen Stout, Ph.D. Bowman Distinguished Professor of Leadership & Director, Karen W. Morse Institute for Leadership, Western Washington University

Thank you Seconde for coming to my class. I think you sensed the interest you stimulated in the students. Your story as well as your presentation is very inspiring. Your perspective on American race issues was also very insightful. I was pleased with the way you drew all of the students into the discussion.”

Walton Johnson, Ph.D., Professor, Rutgers University

Seconde, it was beyond wonderful having you speak here at our conference! I’ve heard only rave reviews of your presentation from all.”
