Owning the Power of Your Voice

Culture Chats

Written by Nathan Hall |


Owning your voice is a part of your personal growth. A voice gives your opinions a platform, and gifts you the opportunity to have perspective and knowledge on things that matter to you and those around you. Many racialized people and their communities understand what it means to be silenced in a society that does not prioritize their voices and worldviews. By learning to amplify your voice, you are not only becoming a voice for yourself, but you are also becoming a voice for many others who have felt unheard.

This Culture Chat helps you address some of the ways in which you have been silenced and walks you through how to find your confidence and navigate speaking the unspeakable.

What You'll Learn

  • Owning your voice
  • Navigating the fear of speaking up
  • Understanding power dynamics
  • Speaking the unspeakable

Speaker Bio

Sophie Jama Malindi is an international keynote TEDx Speaker and women empowerment leader. After a 14 year career in the United Nations, Sophie began pursuing her individual calling: sharing her journey of being a young Ethiopian refugee, separated from her parents, integrating her own story within a narrative of change. Sophie aims to heal intergenerational wounds by speaking the ‘unspeakable’ and breaking the narrative of silence.

After spending a majority of her life feeling unseen and unheard, Sophie set up a company, TruVoice, a dedicated platform to amplify voices of women and marginalized communities so that they are fully heard and seen as a fundamental human need. Sometimes, giving people who do not have a voice a platform is all it takes to bring the darkness into the light.
