This year’s keynote speaker is the talented Emma G.  She is a renowned TEDx Speaker and singer/songwriter, who harnesses the power of music to motivate, uplift, and empower audiences.  Born with a rare neurological condition, Emma G has used music to recover from multiple traumas by writing and singing her truth, sharing her experiences, and turning her lessons into blessings. Music is an incredibly effective tool for transformation: helping us to overcome struggles, trauma, and stress with songs of resilience, self-love, and stepping into one’s power.
