The Leadership Experience Tour is the #1 platform for aspiring speakers and motivational speakers. Their activities globally over the past few years have seen the CEO and Founder Shawn Fair directly impact numerous upcoming speakers, especially those who have stood in front of an audience of thousands. One of the direct beneficiaries of UV Shawn’s teaching and public speaking is Kymaletha Brown. Kymaletha is a young speaker who has displayed attributes of becoming a notable speaker that will bring value to the up-and-coming generation.
Kymaletha is the founder of Goddess Great Maternal Infant Health Program (non-profit) and The Great Divine Center LLC, two organizations dedicated to reducing African American infant and maternal mortality rates. The Great Divine Center is the first black-owned women’s wellness center in Detroit, MI, that is a one-stop-shop for clinical mental health counseling, dance, yoga, meditation, hypnobirthing, doula support, and more. Goddess Great MIHP provides home-based childbirth education and infant health services for Medicaid eligible families.
Kymaletha has lived through a life of trials and tribulations, which put her at risk. She faced 10-15 years in prison while pregnant; she also had her car confiscated as evidence, having to leave her job and her apartment and dropping out of college while the father of her unborn child was facing life imprisonment. With just $200 in her bank account and her resilience helped her take control of her life, Kymaletha relocated, and that’s when her life took a turn for the better. “My story will help women and young girls know the importance of making better choices and understanding how relationships with the wrong people can cost you your future. However, I utilized my resources and didn’t let my circumstances dictate my future. I had one mental breakdown that put my baby and I at risk. From that day forward, I vowed to make better decisions. I chose my baby and me,” she explained.
Kymaletha’s theory and approach to life are all about choosing oneself ﬁrst and making better decisions no matter the circumstances or situation. She believes that all human beings are powerful. “My job is to assist you in being the best version of yourself and gaining access to those powers through person-centered and strength-based therapy.” Now she is committed to helping different people survive their own battles, no matter how difficult it appears.
According to Kymaletha, all that she went through aligned with God’s divine purpose for her life. As someone who always wanted to help people, it wasn’t until she was pregnant that she grew an interest in birth work and mental health. With the many horrific stories about birth, surviving through the pregnancy and childbirth was like a miracle to her. Both organizations address socioeconomic disadvantages, limited access to quality prenatal care, lack of resources, racial disparities and birth inequalities in the healthcare system towards African American women in Detroit.
On her plans for the next five years, Kymaletha said, “I see my companies thriving and making more community connections. I want to establish partnerships with agencies and organizations that assist low income families. In the next ﬁve years, I want to be an organization that helps African American families thrive. I am not doing this for the money; I am doing this for my community. I see myself speaking across the world on these topics: making better choices, law of self-value, understanding mental health, birth rights, and birth justice for African American women.”
