The Speakers

Ciltona Cawthorne

Your encouragement sister
I am a native New Yorker living in North Carolina. I love movies, dance, the theatre, good conversation, and strong Cappuccino. I am an artist advocate, I believe the arts can be used to mentor, enlighten and enrich our communities.

I work to amplify the voices of marginalized women that have been overlooked.
I am a single mother, a poet, an entrepreneur, an author, a copywriter and a motivational spoken word artist who comes from a long line of storytellers with entrepreneurial mindsets.
My passion is to help women to become inspired and be encouraged so they can grow from that place of feeling powerless to becoming empowered. Healed and empowered women can better serve our families and our communities. I draw my strength and inspiration from God’s promises of love, grace, and mercy.

My name is Ciltona, I am your Encouragement Sister, you will not meet another, because I am the original. I deliver motivation and encouragement for women to be fierce and focused.
