“I absolutely enjoyed this broadcast. Seeing the amazing journey Lavonne has gone through really gave me inspiration. I'm in awe with everything she's gone through and has done. She is so talented and it made me feel even more sad that I didn't fight harder to learn from Donna. I missed my opportunity to attend Empire Academy and now that it's gone, I fear I'll never get that chance to learn from the best. I felt so happy watching this webinar, seeing how Lavonne's dream came true but at the same time, I felt sad knowing that I may never get a chance to learn all I can from the best educator there is. I'm crossing my fingers though. Thank you for a fun and inspirational webinar.”
