And I was SICK AND TIRED of avoiding public speaking situations!
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was promoted to a higher position after only 6 months at my first real corporate job. It was an exhilarating feeling…until I realized it meant I’d be more visible. No more sitting comfortably in the background while others spoke! Now all eyes would be on me. And I dreaded it.
My heart felt like it was beating out of my chest, my mouth turned to cotton, and I could tell my team wasn't able to follow me because I lacked clarity. I started to feel anxious and like an imposter, even though I KNEW I was knowledgeable. I also knew I could not go on like this much longer if I wanted to be successful in my professional and personal endeavors.
This experience led me on a dedicated mission to become a confident, clear, engaging speaker AND to develop other men and women of God into powerful speakers.

She helped me organize my thoughts, and she gave great delivery tips for telling my story to high school students and adults. She’s kind, knowledgeable, and an award-winning speaker! If you have to give a presentation or speech – see Roquita!”
Roquita surpassed our expectations!
“I know Roquita as an outstanding member of the Toastmasters chapter we both belonged to. Because Roquita is an arresting public speaker with a highly polished professional demeanor, I asked her to address my chapter of SLA on presenting yourself well, at work and during the job hunting process. Roquita surpassed our expectations. She personalized her advice to us and delivered it with thoughtfulness, humor and a healthy dose of her unique charisma.”
“It is a privilege to have Roquita as a mentor and coach in the arena of speech writing and Public Speaking.
I have learnt so much from her on how to craft and deliver engaging stories that are impactful. Through her honest feedback and advice I’ve been able to win various club and area speech contests at Toastmasters Events. I continually look forward to learning more from her. “
