My friend Celeste has been trying to get me to attend this workshop a couple of times now. As much as I would love to attend, I have to turn her down. Not until my trip home would I be able to splurge again.
But if you’re a man/woman of color and interested in telling YOUR story, here’s the info on the workshop.
MY OWN STORY
