VOICES OF TRUTH™
E-Communication Leader & Lecturer
“My life pretty much changed overnight.”
That's how Princella describes speaking at the
2004 Republican National Convention
at the age of 20.
Story: I was born and raised in Wynne, AR the first of three children and the only girl. The granddaughter of a sharecropper and daughter of a minister and an educator, I could not help but have strong blood run through my veins. Love for God first and family second served as themes for my childhood and have helped to shape my young adult life. Rural America introduced me to community service and the value of human life at an early age.
My maternal grandmother saw in me the gift of words which she detected quite early.
My parents quickly discovered my desire to be like “grown folks” in my adamant curiosity of the national news, and pesky habit of what they called “getting into grown folks business”. Of course, they would have none of the latter, and they quickly found a way to help channel the energy: they bought me books. I read encyclopedias. I read the Bible. I read volume sets that they bought. My mother read me history stories. Read more

What people are saying...
Princella's presentation in the New Politics Forum Campaign 2008 Presidential Election Debriefing stood out as a highlight of the con-
ference. It was instructive and engaging, and her sense of humor and candor were especially appreciated by the students. The questions she raised and the energetic discussion that was provoked set the tone for the entire performance.
The New Politics Forum was born out of a desire to educate young people by creating a place where they can begin a dialogue with the political practitioners and with each other. Even though we had the highest of hopes for this project, I am still taken aback by the ex-
citement generated among the students. It is not an overstatement to say that this could not have been accomplished without Princella's talent and passion.
