A Passionate and Inspiring Speaker
"Ms. Becerra spoke about her experiences as a survivor of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, with both grace and kindness. Students related to Ms. Becerra's gentle manner. Several students explored her comments further and wanted to understand her healing journey. I look forward to working with her again in our efforts to increase awareness around sexual violence."

"Having Bobbie as part of our organization has been a true blessing. Her love, dedication and healing message has proved to be crucial as we work with girls that have been neglected not only by their parents, but also society. Bobbie's love towards our youth has been consistent, strong and fun, we love having her smile at our youth events. Looking forward to working with her in years to come!"
