Our presenter will be coming to us from Akron, OH. Mr. Kenneth “Jo-Jo” Smith is a self-published author releasing a book titled “We Love Our Daddy” that focuses on the importance of fathers being present. Mr. Smith has spoken for various organizations referencing the importance of physical and mental health. He is also the founder of a Non-Profit organization Ladies First Akron located in Akron, OH.
His presentation is titled: Finding Who You Are By Knowing Who You Aren’t. During his presentation, he will be discussing:
