I have known Genevieve since 2018 when she first came to The Rotary Young Persons Leadership Awards (RYLA). During that week of intense activity, myself and others saw the substantial development in the confidence she gained.Genevieve spoke at the 2019 RYLA Gala dinner with an audience of 200 plus, a challenge which Genevieve carried out with considerable success. She continues to be involved in numerous public speaking engagements with Rotary and RYLA all of which she carries out with continuing and growing success.Genevieve has considerable personal experience which underlines her genuineness and she speaks from the heart with a level of authenticity which creates an excellent connection with her audience. I am also very confident that with continuing experience in public speaking Genevieve will become an outstanding inspirational speaker in her own right.

Genevieve's professionalism discussing the topics of OCD and anorexia nervosa made it more approachable somehow.
Thank you for coming to talk at my school today. It made me feel like I wasn't alone.
