Oprah Audition: The Regina Louise Hour
"It is hard to imagine how one person can hold a room of 1,000 people in a quiet, unmoving trance. But that was exactly what Regina did for close to 40 minutes. With such openness and honesty Regina retold the story of her life, a life that is not too dissimilar to the life that many of our children have experienced. Regina brought to life the suffering that too many children have and continue to experience in communities throughout our country. Regina’s courage and resiliency amazed and inspired everyone in the room and was a call to action to address child abuse and neglect in our world. Regina left an indelible mark on everyone that was in the room and on our agency!"
"We are still floating after the Luncheon! We have received universally positive feedback from the event – most pointing out how amazing they thought you were. I really can’t thank you enough for giving so much of yourself to us and to our event. I’ll be eternally grateful."
"I cannot believe that we were privileged to hear from Regina Louise! We have been doing this Symposium for 10 years now and we have never had such incredibly positive evaluations. Her story is so compelling and genuine that you could have heard a pin drop. She touched every heart in that 300 person room as well as waiters, hotel staff and anyone else wandering the halls. Her evaluations were amazing and brought out goodness in the work we do. I also appreciate her taking the time to talk to every person who wanted their book signed. By the way, we sold out of her book almost immediately."
