Shilpa Ray…The #1 Reason to go out on a Monday Night

Kelly Thomas: Feminism, Strength and Equality expressed through Not Just One More Girl On A Stage

Oct 24, 2013

By: Roxie Conquistador ‘You know,’ she tells me, ‘I realize that I have a talent for pushing people to share what’s inside, to connect with their potential and project it.’ I’m sitting, standing, walking, running errands, sharing a pretzel, sharing a beer and sharing thoughts with Kelly Thomas; and already I’m more motivated. She’s a teacher, a...
