Born and raised in Bronx, NY to Dominican parents, Rosann always knew she had a purpose in life. She had a dream that both women and men could elevate their presence, be noticed, fulfilling their own unique dreams. With a compassionate soul and the deep burning desire to help others around her, she used her ability to motivate people through words and her hunger for knowledge to drive her closer and closer to that dream. She is now a career motivational keynote and among the best education keynote speakers for high school and college students. Currently serving as the Director of Strategic Initiatives for Student Affairs at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, a City University of New York, and an adjunct faculty member in the Latin American Studies Department, Rosann has worked in higher education for nearly 20 years.
