“We had the pleasure of having Jenna speak at our Toronto Catholic District School Board’s Inclusion and Belonging Retreat for the past three years. Jenna uses spoken word and personal storytelling to connect with our Catholic leaders about Jean Vanier’s message of inclusion and belonging for all of our students.”
– Greg Rogers, Toronto Catholic District School Board, Student Leadership Coordinator
I am an educational public speaker who explores self-expression, vulnerability and diversity in a fun, thoughtful and engaging way. I have been invited to share my story and spoken word poetry at various events, including TEDx, Pecha Kucha, International Women’s Day and the Toronto Catholic District School Board’s first Inclusion and Belonging Retreat for LGBTQ+ students and allies.
As a Chinese-Jamaican woman who is gay and Christian, I have been an insider and outsider in many communities. These experiences have given me the perspective to speak on many issues and themes, and encourage audiences to embrace their multi-layered stories.
