Sasha R. Simmons is a motivational speaker and a recent graduate of the University of North Florida where she completed a Master of Public Health. As an Empowerment Activist, Sasha’s mantra is that anyone can achieve anything; it is simply a matter of “how bad” they want it!
Sasha is the founder of SpeakLife, LLC., a member of Toastmasters International, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. where she works with their “Emerging Young Leaders Program”. She also volunteers for the Jacksonville Urban League Young Professionals organization, serves as an ambassador for the Gate Millennium Scholar Program and mentors college and high school students throughout the state of Florida.
Much of Sasha’s inspiration stems from her own life. As a child, she was raised in an economically challenged community and combated many tough situations. Though faced with seemingly impossible challenges, she was determined to conquer the cycle of poverty that plagued her family.
Sasha focuses a large portion of her energy into Jacksonville’s youth in an effort to encourage them to defeat all odds against them. With a clear vision and much resilience, Sasha is on a mission to empower, elevate, and encourage all to take charge of their lives and Never Stop at No!
