The presentation provided by Cheryl-Ann was captivating, and a distinctly creative way to promote positive body image…it was a powerful and positive encounter.

Cheryl-Ann’s panel speech was not only touching and thought-provoking but uplifting, laughter-provoking and motivational as well. She was the highlight of the conference!

Today, you lifted me up. I have been longing to be a professional settlement counsellor and today you brought me closer to my goal.

The course was fun, emotional and very revealing in more ways than one.
As a person who has suffered all her life with body image and suffered from low self esteem and the ridicule of many people who I have come in contact with, your work has inspired me to remind myself about who I am, and that my body is special.
In addition to favourable comments from the survey, several staff talked to me in person sharing how much they enjoyed your speech. So, a big THANK YOU for making our PD day this year so enjoyable and staff motivated to reach their best. On a very personal note – you are a great speaker and facilitator and it was a pleasure working with you!

I believe that the purpose of the visual arts is to speak and motivate everyone on either a universal or personal level. I congratulate you on the ability to accomplish both of these levels.
