TESTIMONIALS

Tai T. Huynh 

Soteria has an energy about her when she speaks that is so inviting and warm. Her energy engages even the most introverted person, welcoming them to jump in and participate. Soteria has a talent for challenging others, pushing them out of their comfort zone in the most supportive way possible. She challenged paradigms I have long held in a way that was reassuring and supportive. Her workshop energized me to strive for transformation, both in myself as well as my surroundings.

Soteria…Her use of language is amazingly beautiful. Her words echo from someplace deep in her soul calling forth the ancestors to tell their stories and ours.  She is walking artistry. Her words bellow out reaching into the hearts of her audience. We sit captivated by her commands of words. She is indeed a word smith who knows how to invite people of all races, religious and spiritual backgrounds, sexuality, nationality and ages to feast at her table of poetry and song. She feels the heartbeat of people. Her message resounds with the urgency for freedom, justice and liberation for all people. She understands the importance of standing in her Blackness and Womanness. This sista is the real deal! Soteria brings forth the energy of our sista Audre Lorde. “I am who I am doing what I came to do, acting upon you like a drug or chisel to remind you of your me-ness, as I discover you in myself.”

Soteria’s ability to build bridges across differences, engage in discussion about those differences, and maintain those bridges is an amazing gift and something I have consistently admired.

Watching the Turning the Tables project come to life was incredible. Artists coming in and out of the shop, working in the yard with their families or while chatting with other community members – all while slowly filling the space with color.

Soteria gathered people of all ages and colors to turn a pile of wooden boards into vivid and inspiring pieces of storytelling, conversation and purpose. Truly a project focused on community, in every sense of the word.

I have had the honor to work with Soteria on multiple occasions now. Soteria has this ability to make people care. To speak and act on what she believes is the right thing. Educate and enlighten all that come in contact with her. I’m forever changed for the better just by being around the joyous and infectious environment that follows everywhere she goes.

When I first saw and heard Soteria perform, I was captivated. She had taken a theme and ideas for a 3 day event I attended and wove them into a powerful kick off.  What she did stayed with me. It’s the best introduction of a conference I have seen.  I just had to contact her and have her do more! I highly recommend her for your event!
