Genesis Amaris Kemp – Loss & Grief: How to Use the Power of Your Voice to Create Change Along Your Healing Journey



I felt embraced by wisdom during this enlightening conversation with Genesis Amaris Kemp, visionary life coach, motivational speaker, best-selling author, DEI advocate, and host of GEMS podcast. Please join us as we discuss:

  • Genesis’ personal journey overwhelming loss and subsequent grief

Bio:

“Genesis Amaris Kemp is a Creative Content Writer, Author, Self-Development Advocate, Visionary, Inclusion and Diversity enthusiast, Firecracker, and a force to be reckoned with.

She is a woman of color who said, “Enough is enough,” and is now bolder than ever. She tried to remain silent, but that didn’t work because no change occurred. Today, Genesis is readapting to the current times and making some life-changing decisions. She is stepping outside of her comfort zone by speaking up, challenging the status quo, and refusing to let limitations on her keep her down.

Genesis is a woman who will do great things that empower others to speak up for themselves. Yes, it may be challenging; yes, it may hurt. But in the long run, she desires to encourage others to help those who may not have a voice.

She is a trailblazer who wants others to live out their dreams, goals, and visions. If it takes her writing this book (Chocolate Drop in Corporate America: From The Pit To The Palace) to accomplish those tasks, then so be it. We all have been given an excellent purpose in life. It is up to us to walk it out and live victoriously!

Genesis has been featured on four dozen-plus podcasts, magazines and then decided to finally start her own podcast, GEMS, with Genesis Amaris Kemp.”
