"The event was spectacular. We received wonderful, wonderful feedback on Shoshana’s presentation. Everyone absolutely loved it. It was a great event. She is just terrific."
"Shoshana Johnson was awesome. She is such a down to earth, funny, remarkable woman. I am glad that we got the chance to bring her to our campus. Everyone seemed to enjoy her very much. Thank you for everything. I hope to work with you again in the future."
"Shoshana did an absolutely fabulous job on Saturday. She just was wonderful. She was so accommodating. We had a really good turnout and have great evaluations from attendees. I am looking forward to bringing her back to the Charleston event. Everything went really well; she is a genuinely nice young lady and her message was very well received."
"Shoshana was wonderful. She was able to hold the audience of 500 with complete attention. Following her talk, she received blessings, praises, prayers, flowers, gifts and best of all, "the Key to the City." Overall, it was a great evening with lots of media attention and newspaper articles prior to and after her appearance. She also received media on all major channels of the 11:00 pm news, followed by the early morning news. Thanks for your help in getting her here."
"Shoshana was wonderful, very down to earth and engaging. Her speech was right on target and very well received in our military community. I have heard nothing but rave reviews. She was very accommodating, and spoke with the local media before the dinner, and then spent a great deal of time taking pictures, signing autographs and shaking hands after the dinner."
