“Rather than telling a lecture hall full of people what they already knew, Courtney made her work relevant to our campus and everyone in the room. Weeks later, people are still talking and the effects of her visit can be heard in classrooms, club meetings, and in dialogues between students and faculty.”
Carly Goldstein, Skidmore student
“Courtney speaks with prophetic wisdom, candor, and power about issues many of us feel burdened by but have not yet ‘languaged.’ She is a brilliant speaker, who can challenge deeply held and unexamined assumptions about the meaning of success, beauty, and wealth.”
Selena Sermeno, PhD, Ambassadorial Chair, United World College-USA Bartos Institute
