Motivational Speaker dares to persevere through life’s challenges and reveals how you can too! The Fond du Lac family YMCA welcomes a very special guest speaker, Arletta Allen, to tell her personal story of escape from a domestically-abusive relationship to thriving as a hometown hero and inspiration to many. The YMCA hosts their annual staff meeting with over one hundred and fifty employees present to captivate the essence of their annual campaign theme, “B.I.G. (Believe, Inspire, Give).
"Allen will take to the podium at the local YMCA, Sunday, November 18, 2018 at 5 pm to present her story and will commune afterwards to meet and greet the attendees."
Authentically Arletta is a lifestyle brand presented by Arletta Allen. Allen has overcome many different adverse situations and has developed into a great example of perseverance and resilience. Allen presents a message on “Daring to Persevere”, a message impacting positive change into the lives of others by giving five key points on how they too can persevere through life’s challenges.
Authentically Arletta, the dynamic lifestyle brand, has openings for speaking engagements in 2019. Arletta Allen, the CEO and keynote speaker within the organization, specializes and elaborates on popular topics such as: perseverance, professional development; diversity and inclusion; leadership; inspiration; domestic violence; teen pregnancy prevention and abandonment. Allen is thriving at Marian University and anticipates graduation in spring 2019 with a Bachelors of Communication, with emphases in public speaking. Allen is taking her aspirations to impact change in the world to her main stage in a major way and you do not want to miss an opportunity to have her come and speak at your next event.
Authentically Arletta was developed as a brand because of Arletta Allen’s need to be accepting of her first, over the opinions of others. Allen discovered that there was a sense of fulfillment that came along with just being authentic to who she is and not quitting or giving up when life would get tough but choosing to persevere. Allen is on a mission to spread the word that “daring to persevere” through life’s challenges offers a reward that is shatterproof. Allen states, “Perseverance is worth the investment of learning the technique to overcome every challenge no matter how difficult.”
Allen recently spoke at an event on October 25, 2018 entitled "Infamous Mothers" where she told her personal story and introduced the creators and playwrights of Infamous Mothers. Allen was also featured in the local newspaper “The Reporter” identifying her as an Infamous Mother. Associate Professor and Social Work Program Director at Marian University, Leslie Jaber-Wilson states, “I loved her presentation and she spoke words that everyone in the room needed to hear. Arletta is well-spoken and articulates her message very well and inspires everyone who will hear.” Sagashus T. Levingston, creator of Infamous Mothers, in response to Allen’s introductions gave personal feedback and stated, “The way in which she told her story and owned it was so powerful, it brought me to my knees and to tears. I’m hoping that at our next conference we can have Arletta there, because the world needs to hear her story.”
Greg Giles, CEO and director at the Fond du Lac Family YMCA sought Allen as keynote speaker for their annual staff meeting because he was so inspired by Allen’s personal story and knew that others would too. Greg Giles was amongst the attendees at the Infamous Mother’s event hosted at Marian University. Greg states, “Arletta possessed a willingness to never give up even though the odds were stacked against her, there is a valuable lesson for all to learn through her experiences.”
According to Angela Lee Duckworth, Professor at the University of Pennsylvania and author of “Grit: The Power of Passion to Perseverance,” “There are four key elements to success and the main ingredient is grit. Grit is holding steadfast to your goal even when you fall down, even when you screw up, even when progress toward that goal is halting or slow.”
Key elements of success consists of; pursuing what interests me, practicing deliberately, having purpose, and being hopeful about my passion in wanting to help others. Angela Duckworth does an amazing job expressing in a simple format the truths behind why I am so passionate about taking my message of “daring to persevere” to the world,” states Allen.
Excitement continues to build as Allen anticipates taking the stage at the local Fond du Lac Family YMCA. Inspiration at its best is what Allen is known for and will be sure to deliver as staff, board members, and colleagues come together to highlight the strong points of their annual campaign. Allen is a whirlwind of positive energy and is eager to present and represent the dynamic lifestyle brand of Authentically Arletta.

Arletta brought power and vulnerability while courageously sharing how people’s actions have hurt her and her family, and at the same time teaching us how to grow and change, as she is. The limits and mistakes are just the beginning of the story, not the most important part. The interview was awesome, transparent and educating.
