I alone cannot change the world but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Mother Theresa

The Stone Caster  

The above quote epitomizes how Jackie views her mission in life—to create ripples among our youth that will educate, equip and empower them to dream bigger dreams, make better decisions and walk into their destinies.  In October 2001, Jackie walked into her own destiny, when she traded in “success” for “significance”. She left a thriving career in management with Procter & Gamble to follow her passion of helping youth live up to their fullest potential.  And she’s been creating ripples ever since!

You are changing the world, one classroom at a time.

The Speaker/Storyteller

Jackie has enjoyed speaking to tens of thousands of youth, adults, parents and educators in the United States and in Africa over the past ten years. She is a master storyteller who seamlessly weaves compelling, real-life stories of youth into each message. Jackie is able to connect with audiences of all ages, races, and backgrounds on any number of topics. Her audiences are captivated by her message and inspired by her personal story.

Your stories were very influential and so real life.

The Frontline Youth Worker

What sets Jackie apart from many youth speakers is that she not only delivers keynotes before large assemblies of thousands each year, but she can also be found on the frontline, empowering youth in a classroom of thirty each week.  The “real talk” classroom discussions give Jackie a window into the hearts and minds of teens that very few adults get to experience. Students have described her classes as:  “eye- opening, inspirational, life-changing, thought-provoking, hilarious and empowering.”

I liked the fact that we could be ourselves with you. You were like one of the teens just having a random sex talk that we could all relate to.

The Mentor

Jackie has made such an impact on her students that many of them remain in contact with her long after graduating from high school. Several have served alongside her as peer educators, volunteers, and even youth speakers themselves. A continuous source of wisdom, inspiration and accountability, it’s no wonder that some of her former students now call Jackie “mentor” and they all call her “friend.”

You have made a huge impact on my life and I would love to keep you in my life as a mentor!

The Entrepreneur 

Drawing upon her educational roots from Furman University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management, Jackie became an entrepreneur in 2002.  She is the CEO and founder of MotivationN3D, LLC, a motivational speaking company located in Metro Atlanta, GA, where she resides.

I am very glad that you quit your corporate job to come talk to us.

The Adventurer 

Jackie’s not your average, run of the mill youth speaker. Underneath that sensible, even-keeled, exterior lays a wild animal African safari-touring, raging white water rafting, 14,000 feet in the air sky- diving adventurer, who in her spare time when she’s not motivating young people to reach their fullest potential; is out living hers.

I thank you a thousand times for choosing the road less traveled.
