Meet Our Guest Facilitator!
Shakia O. Seabrook is the founder of Bare.Bold&Beautiful, a movement focused on self-acceptance, body perception and empowerment. She started her professional career in Social
Work but soon realized that Social Work is not meant to fit into a box. A change was needed
and she stepped forth as the change agent. Through the formation of Bare.Bold & Beautiful she
found a way to incorporate all that she loves to do: motivational speaking, uplifting others and
traveling, into what she feels is her own version of Social Work.
Working with girls and women within various capacities for the past 5 years has confirmed the
much needed dialogue that is necessary around self-acceptance. Currently working as a
Domestic Violence Advocate, Shakia balances her time presenting her Talk About IT
workshops, public speaking, as well as hosting community events for girls and women. Through
the workshops and events she creates a safe space for that needed dialogue. Shakia has formally
shared her message with nearly 2,000 girls and women through her workshops and community
events. Informally she has reached thousands more.
Shakia, a Connecticut native, lives in Danielson, CT. Outside of her work with
Bare. Bold & Beautiful, Shakia maintains her interest in community service through volunteer
activities and is an active member of her local church. She earned her bachelor’s degree of Social
Work from Elizabeth City State University and a master’s degree of Social work from Fordham
