La’Keisha Gray-Sewell is a writer and digital strategist by trade; a nationally recognized girls advocate by life assignment. Combining both, she serves to help individuals and organizations identify relevant digital platforms to narrate their stories. As a media literacy expert and motivational speaker, La’Keisha’s transformative programs and trainings empower girls and women to navigate beyond the block of stereotypes, stigma, and habits to become global legacy builders.
In 2011 she founded Girls Like Me Project, Inc; an Illinois not-for-profit organization which seeks to liberate urban African-American girls through mentoring and self discovery programming which includes workshops, training, and empowerment events. Girls gain the ability to use digital media as an advocacy tool and to become independent, influential digital-storytellers.
