Women Making A Difference!





Meet Nina Rodriquez!! She is an amazing woman who runs a business around tribal African drumming!! That’s right…her Unlock the Rhythm workshops are held around the country for schools, businesses, and seminars. When I walked into the room last Friday night in a local elementary school, I was not sure what to expect. Each chair cradled a tiny African bongo….and Nina was surrounded by two very muscular men setting up their drums.





This was one of the most fun exercises I have witnessed. She was great with the kids and the whole experience was exhilarating. What made it even more touching was that the majority of the children in the audience are deaf. Nina is just one of the many incredible women in the world doing unique things with their gifting! It has been fun to go out and find them since my freelance writing ramped up a bit!








I hope we all are looking for ways to make a difference in this world!

I am on the road today to see family, but hopefully, will be here for Patti's Visible Monday!






Happy Sunday!

  7. This is so cool...I imagine the children can feel the vibrations of the drums even if they are deaf. I know an art therapists who works in a facility where they have a drum table and she says that it is strangely calming to her clients. Nina looks like she has so much energy.
