I spoke at a conference with over a hundred women and that is when I knew speaking is what I am to do. I had my head down looked up and the women were giving me a standing ovation. In this instance when it come to issues that women endure we need to hear encouragement, along professionalism. I am alive and I want to share my story of suicide, teen pregnancies, domestic violence, rape, alcoholism, chronic illness, near death and much more.
Ms. Lawler's talk was a rousing success with our ladies, all who are also impacted by HIV. Her journey with her struggles connected with our attendees, and made for a very lively presentation. She was very moving and powerful to watch.
After her presentation which had everyone on their feet, she stayed and talked to the many women who gathered around her.
Response from Twana Lawler:
Thank you Melissa, tell the ladies I may see them again. You are working with some wonderful ladies and you will be blessed in what you are doing. Thank you for believing in me and allowing me to speak. It was awesome.

What to Expect
The speaking engagement in Dallas, Texas on May 3rd 2015 was awesome. That was the first time I spoke in front of almost 280 women with the same thing as I. As I finished my session I was walking down the stairs, looked up and they were yelling, crying and cheering. I got a standing ovation and the women all came up to embrace me and thanked me for being honest and sharing my story. Some said they were ashamed, but I helped them. I was happy that I blessed so many women. I was the only speaker to receive such a wonderful response. Eventually I would like to present a short play for the people.
