Genein is passionate and you can tell there's so much excitement and enthusiasm because this is coming from a place where she was. This wasn't just a general lecture, this was her talking from the heart and from a place of perseverance. She was able to inspire our student audience while teaching them about their financial futures and their road to happiness.

Genein wowed the audience of soon to be first year commuter college students at our 6th Annual Commuter Retreat at Mount Saint Mary's University. Filled with anxiety and excitement about starting their college journey, Genein assuaged their fears by sharing with them about her experience as a contestant on Wipeout and equated it to seizing opportunities that will come their way. She delivered an inspiring message about "embracing the unknown" and "being comfortable with being uncomfortable." The students raved that one of the best aspects of the Retreat experience was hearing from Genein. She is an amazing motivational speaker. Her message was timely and profound for our students. Thank you Genein for the great work you are doing to inspire our future generation of leaders.
