Favorite moment from the conference

Paul C Brunson Kerry-Ann Reid-Brown Mikelah Rose

Paul C. Brunson said that the best parts of conferences is in the hallways and I must agree because some of my more impactful takeaways happened outside of the conference sessions.

Mikelah, Paul and I had a mini – Jamaican link up at the end of the general session. You dun know how we do – Jamaicans every weh. A side note: I mentioned Paul in my post celebrating Caribbean American Heritage Month.
