For a presentation that leaves you wanting more, Cheryl Silvera is the facilitator. Her presentations are informative, spiritual, and beneficial for an audience that wants to learn in the enlightened manner. I have personally been in the audience and was amazed at her style and approach.

As a Christian pastor who wants to emulate Jesus’ love and care, for everyone, I’ve been greatly blessed by Ms. Silvera's disabilities awareness presentations. What I love the most about her expositions are the unique way in which she connects with the audience and her profound knowledge of the topic. From my perspective she is someone who from experience knows what she is talking about, I’d strongly recommend her presentations!
