Keyona grew up in Detroit, MI and previously sat on the Board of Directors for the Guidance Center which focused on early childhood development and community growth. After working a few years in Advertising, she branched out into public speaking. She has spoken to thousands of high school students about how to be successful in college and in their careers. Soon she realized that she wanted to connect with students on a much more personal level and truly inspire change. She has traveled to 10 different countries and has come to realize that nothing is more precious than the human heart. She has personally accepted Rachel's Challenge and is honored to help continue Rachel's legacy and “touch the heart of millions”.
