    Shakina is an excellent eductaor! The kids at Rock to the Future loved her; she even got one of our shyest students to act in a skit. We look forward to working with her again in the future.

    We invited Shakina to perform a monologue and to be a panelist at our annual conference for expectant and parenting teens and I must say she was a blessing to our youth. From the first phone call with Shakina is was evident that she was willing to meet our needs and her experience and authenticity would resonate with our youth and indeed it did!! Her monologue about her personal experience was powerful and her words of wisdom helped over 200 youth to feel loved and accepted. Shakina is a class act sent by God. We enjoyed you and appreciate you for sharing your testimony with the masses! Peace and Blessings on your journey to help others "Parent with a Purpose"! Sherry Clark

    As you will inevitably learn on your path to losing weight, effective weight loss is not only about watching what you eat, but much more about changing your lifestyle. This means changing your habits and how you approach your day-to-day life. Read this information to help you throughout the process.

    Thanks Shakina: You made our annual International Women's Day dinner event a very special occasion. Everyone in the room room was engaged and with you, from your touching introduction to your last word. Many thanks from the Elkins Park and Abington Dining for Women chapters.

    I had the AMAZING opportunity to meet Kina at the Montgomery County Teen Parent Task Force's 26th Annual Teen Parent Conference on 4/23/15 in Eagleville, PA. Ironically, "Words" can't even describe the depth and captivation she was able to provide the audience. All her talents combined were embedded in her performance. Her acting, spoken word, story telling, sharing personal experiences that were VERY personal and (not easy for someone to share to a group of people), all the while she was uplifting and positive. She was able to inspire the teens by letting them know that there is a life out there that is better than what they have been or are currently experiencing. She even was available for them to reach out to her with questions or if they wanted to connect afterward. This to me represents TRUE INTEGRITY. Kina even sat in on our discipline workshop my coworker and I facilitated and shared some insight even though her children are waaay past the "time out" years! :) Kina you are one of God's special gifts. I am honored to have been in your presence and to have experienced your art in person. It was pure, raw and true talent. Spoken word is a hidden artform that flies underneath the radar of pop culture and I love that quality it posseses. I remember when Russell Simmons hosted a short stint of Def Poetry Jam on HBO....Talib Kweli was the last performer one night and all I could say was good LORD, thank you for allowing him to perform last because NO ONE could get on the MIC after that lol!! IT was done, over.... he DUN KILT IT! I am a long time avid lover of spoken word, the components of hip hop (I could never really write graffiti, although I threw up a couple bombs in my time :), and I used to be really into b-girling before i had my family and gained weight and got old lol). You get my point. It's in my blood. I Love you and what you do. Your hubby is a great supporter as well and I had the pleasure of meeting him along the sidelines as well. I hope to catch another performance soon!! God Bless and keep doing what you do best! xx Jess

    As a poet Kina has a true art, and the fact she flows prophetically which makes it powerful, there is always a powerful message in these poems! And they speak right to you, she is a true example to a poet like me! Thank you Kina

    We had Shakina at our Blush conference in Philadelphia this past fall 2014. Shakina was a JOY to be around. Not only was she professional and spent time with our team in the green room all day, she was more than willing to work with us and was flexible to the extent that we needed her to be Our entire team loved getting to meet and get to know Shakina- she was not just a "performer" for the day but she became part of our team. We would love to have her again!
