On March 24, 2018, I delivered my first TEDx Talk at TEDxBirmingham

As a public speaker, I strive to leave audiences both inspired and informed.


I received overwhelmingly positive feedback after Javacia’s presentation, which was filled with useful tips and takeaways for our members. She’s a dynamic, engaging speaker who’s also warm and approachable, and her ideas are fresh and creative. I would highly recommend Javacia as a speaker for any group of media professionals.” — Michele Turk, president of the CT Press Club
