Award-winning journalist Jeneé Darden inspires and enlightens through her personal stories. She was a teenager when her father Christopher Darden became a prosecutor during the O.J. Simpson Trial. "The Trial of the Century was a turbulent time in my life that I wish on no one,"  says Jeneé. "But it left me with valuable life lessons that I share with others." A mental health advocate, Jeneé gets real about living with depression and fighting internalized stigma. As an African-American journalist who covers race and gender, she talks about issues related to those groups along with sex. Jenee's reporting, advocacy and personal story have reached people around the world. She speaks at conferences, graduations, universities, schools and corporations. Read her bio here.
