Every 72 seconds an American
is sexually assaulted. And every 9 minutes the victim is a child.
Studies have shown that sexual references are made anywhere from 8 to 10 times during 1 hour of prime time television.

“We hosted Nubia as a panelist on an event in support of Trinitas Health Foundation’s fundraising campaign for the renovation of their Behavioral Health Center. Nubia was selected, as she is a perfect example of thriving through trauma while balancing self-care and coping skills for everyday challenges. Her poise, professionalism and impactful contribution made her not only a pleasure to work with, but her input was invaluable in terms of her easy delivery and messaging. She is a great addition to any group of speakers as her style blends easily with others, however she also makes an engaging solo speaker, as she has fun but captivating message that is essential to everyone trying to live a fulfilled and balanced life.”
