This conference is one of the largest student events that SUNY Empire hosts. Highlights will include sessions on leadership development, careers, professional development, and health and wellness.

The theme of this year’s conference is Make It Happen! We know that you make it happen each and every day.

We’re pleased to announce that Thea Monyeé will be the Keynote speaker at this year’s Spring StudentConference.

Thea Monyeé is an accomplished self-identified Black Woman Creative with credits including appearances on HBO, BET, Spectrum, OWN, Fox Soul, and TV One.

Monyeé’s unapologetic work stems from her unwavering commitment to healing and her belief that true healing can only occur in a liberated and non-oppressive society. Monyeé is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has contributed to numerous online publications such as For Harriet, UpSpoken, and Black Girl in Om. She is currently featured as a GoDaddy Maker to discuss mental health in marginalized communities and accessing joy & pleasure.

She is the founder of MarleyAyo, a creative wellness consultation company focused on creating and nurturing a multi-dimensional eco-system that prioritizes the reintegration of spirit and liberation through education, media, consulting, and land stewardship.

Monyeé enjoys creating work that dives into the intersections of healing through decolonization of joy, pleasure, and mental health.

But you should really hear her tell her own story and you can do that during the Keynote Speaker session at the conference, which will be held on Friday, April 8 at 12:45 p.m
