WESOS South Aurora Meeting (Victoria as Sponsor and Keynote Speaker) at Hopvine Brewing Company 11/5/21

This was an amazingly fulfilling event. I got to sponsor the event (so I could bring my books to sell) and I got to be the keynote speaker on the topic of "The Power of Authencity and Being Yourself." Not a dry eye in the house! It was also an ugly sweater party.


Said of the speech: "Our speaker Victoria Hyla Maldonado, owner of Victorious Editing Services, presented 'The Power of Authenticity and Being Yourself,' and let me tell you, it was truly a remarkable talk. Victoria, a a first-time speaker at WESOS, allowerd herself to be vulnerable while opening up to our group, and there wasn't a dry eye in the room. The words she spoke resonated with us, and we were moved. Victoria, you are a gift to us all. We are so lucky to have you as part of our sisterhood. Thank you for sharing and talking for us. ❤
