Reason for being involved in workshop: I am one of the only people who ever said they enjoy public speaking. I love public speaking! I also see how FEW femmes, trans folks, people of color, you name it are getting speaking gigs. It's a travesty! It's not from the lack of enthusiastic folks -- I want to empower the next generation of public speakers.
