Just because I can’t talk, doesn’t mean I don’t have anything to say.
This powerful session features a keynote and vocal performance that will inspire you to look at life through the lens of hope and possibilities. Presented by Holly and Eileen Forlenza, you will hear an amazing story of two women dedicated to giving voice the the voiceless.
Holly, age 25, has pushed beyond the limits of intellectual disabilities to become an author, songwriter, small business owner, and to sharing her non-verbal message of love and perseverance. Eileen has been a motivational speaker/vocalist for over 20 years and together with her daughter Holly has been a powerful advocate at the local, state and national levels. Using supportive communication, Holly will share her wisdom and insight about life as a non-verbal woman breaking her silence to promote full acceptance, respect and systems change.
