My friend, Rose Adams, has a remarkable story of overcoming adversity, of perseverance and of the people who believed in her.
December 16th, 2014

My friend, Rose Adams, has a remarkable story of overcoming adversity, of perseverance and of the people who believed in her.

The child of a single, welfare mother, Rose Adams’ her earliest childhood was in such constant upheaval and desperation that she had rotated through nine foster homes by the time she was seven years old. All this was compounded by her growing up as the only black child in an all-white school, in an all-white community. Now a graduate of the prestigious Osgoode Hall, a successful professional and a community leader, she tells her inspiring and compelling story of overcoming adversity, of perseverance and of the people who believed in her.

She will be the keynote speaker at the 2015 Durham Elementary School Administrators Conference (DESA) on April 30, 2015 in Niagara Falls.
