    "Let's Meet Darren LaCroix"

    in Self Help

    Even for someone born with the comedic gene, going through life’s up's and down's can be no joking matter.  For Darren Lacroix, little did he know the night he decided to live out his comedic passion on stage performing at an open mic night; that not only would he have a disastrous performance, but that it would change his life forever.  He attributes that fateful night as being the beginning of one of the greatest lessons he has learned, the importance of stage time. The ability to recognize how vital stage time is, it allowed Darren to transform into a World Champion of Public Speaking, which he won in 2001. The caveat in all of this is that Darren is still able to use his love of humor to impress upon inspiring messages to audiences all over the world.  Please join us as Darren Lacroix offers D44 Talk Radio some radio time prior to the stage time he is scheduled to give at this year’s District 44 Spring Conference.  Show Host: Dawn Kamara, ACG, ALB.

    "My Baby Girl: Inspires Me"

    in Self Help

    They say people are more afraid of public speaking than death.  There’s not much Catrice McWhorter is afraid of these days.  Catrice has made it her mission to prove to herself that fear is a liar by continuing to overcome any challenges presented to her.  She is one to never accept where she currently may be, as the furthest place she could ever go.   Whether it was leaving the comfort and stability of Atlantic City, New Jersey, her native home; leaving family, friends, and the life she’s known to move to Atlanta, GA.  Or whether, it is traveling and studying abroad on foreign lands for months at a time. Or lastly, satisfying her inner daredevil, with such activities as bungee-jumping, shark cage diving, and parasailing; this smart, educated mother continues to inspire all to be fearless. Guest Catrice McWhorter (1st Place Division F, International Contest Winner) and host Dawn Kamara, ACG, ALB.
