Mira Cassidy Speaking Topics
Get To The Other Side
Trauma, PTSD, mental health issues – you can heal and you can recover. This motivational talk encourages people to not be embarrassed about their condition, and to actively seek the needed help, put in the work, and heal. Mira understands what it’s like to live with PTSD and the struggles on the road to recovery. She shares her journey from surviving to thriving.
Let’s Wait Awhile
Mira makes an informative plea to teen girls to understand the complexity of their decisions to become sexually active. She encourages teens to understand that their bodies are temples and to seek out trusted mentors to whom they can pour their innermost feelings. Mira also shares the impact of losing her virginity at age 15 and experiencing teen dating violence.
Mira is a survivor of domestic violence, empowerment coach, motivational speaker, and writer. As a teen, she studied at the local Youth Video Institute. This opportunity allowed her to interview and meet many influential people such as Nick Cannon, Vivica A. Fox, Susan L. Taylor, Jimmy Jam, and many others.
Sadly, Mira was in a relationship for over 18 years where physical, emotional, mental, and sexual violence existed. However, with a combination of faith, counseling, resilience, hard work, and her ability to rediscover self-worth, she was able to break free and reclaim her identity.
As a survivor of domestic violence, Mira also works to uplift women by organizing women’s empowerment retreats where women can rediscover themselves, heal, and overcome trauma.
