SEQ HOPE Foundation Testimonial


I want to take a moment to thank you for all the support you’ve shown me through my journey as an entrepreneur and as a divorced single Mommie.  You listen and observed the details to remind me that I am doing a great job in certain areas but needed to work on some core areas in my life.  Even after the coaching sessions, I remained motivated and uplifted.  That shows me how encouraging your words really are. Most importantly, I saw progress in my career and my life. That’s everything to me! You’re passionate about your gift.  That passion ignites my purpose so I can continue to inspire myself, my babies and others. Thank you, Dr. Edwards

I had the honor to be in the presence of a great woman at a women’s event. This young lady knows how to touch your inner being. She pulled out so much in me I never knew about myself. All I can say is this… her drive to empower women is impeccable and I am forever grateful for her and her words of encouragement

As a single parent of a young lady, there’s nothing more I’d love than to be considered mom of the year, but knowing that I fall very short of that title has left me feeling inadequate as a parent. I’ve always admired Dr. Edwards parenting style and was very excited to learn that she was offering her services as a parent coach. Dr. Edwards worked with my daughter and I helping me to understand what it is I wanted from myself and for my daughter and how to go about achieving those results. She worked with us to help build our communication and understanding for one another, which made for a better relationship between us.

Both my daughter and I loved seeing Dr. Edwards for our sessions, she made both of us feel comfortable in expressing ourselves and we were never made to feel any judgement . She has been a true blessing for me as I struggled to figure out the right things to do and say to motivate and inspire my daughter and let her know she is my priority. My daughter feels like she has an ally, someone she can talk to and help her understand her feelings and help her understand mine as well.

My name is Yvonne Hernandez, I am a Preschool Director at a private school in South El Monte.  As a Preschool director, I am always looking for speakers to teach parenting classes to preschool parents.   I had the honor of having Dr. Shadeiyah Edwards give a workshop to my preschool parents.  Dr. Edwards technique of an open forum was vital to these parents.  She opened up by giving simple samples on how to re guide common behaviors at different ages.  The vocabulary she used to open up the workshop made parents feel comfortable and at ease.   Parents, did not only learn different techniques, but also were able to open up and began to share their concerns on parenting.  Dr. Edwards transmitted knowledge, taught techniques, but the most important thing was the parents were very involved and comfortable with any topic Dr. Edwards talked about. In the fall we will be inviting Dr. Edwards back again to do another presentation to the parents of our school age children.  It is with great pleasure that I would highly recommend     Dr. Edwards as a key speaker at your next event.

Dr. Edwards was a key-note speaker at several of our women empowerment events and did an exceptional job. As an orator Dr. Edwards delivered remarkable content that captivated the audience. Through her valuable insight, Dr. Edwards was able to connect with every person in the room on both a personal and professional level.

The consensus among attendees at our events is that Dr. Edwards should be a perpetual speaker at all engagements. I definitely recommend her services and look forward to collaborating with her on upcoming events.

Dr. Edwards has to be one of the most motivational people I know. She has an amazing spark that just rubs off on you. I can’t recall a time I have been in her company when I haven’t come away feeling pumped and raring to go. She is non-judgemental and her parenting advice is spot-on and insightful, and is seemingly effective– no matter whether you feel it is on a major or minor issue. Simply put, Dr. Edward’s advice just makes sense!!
