Why Book Jakia?

A fierce keynote and guest speaker, Jakia will captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds through inspiring storytelling that will leave no room for more domestic violence and sexual and emotional abuse. She will easily turn the audience into an army of advocates.

Her speaking topics range from how she became a survivor of domestic violence, sexual abuse, discrimination, and abuse of power, to raising awareness to how the military system needs a reform or incentivizing young adults to be resilient and courageous. Some of Jakia’s most popular topics are:

  • Why the military justice system needs a reform and how Jakia wants to give voice to the ones who need to break the silence, destroy the stigma and end the cycle of abuse in all shapes and forms.
  • How the sexual, misogynistic, and racist violence of the military seeped through Jakia’s entire life.
  • The book War at Home – A Call to Reform the Military Justice System and to Give Voice to the Ones Who Need to Break the Silence, Destroy the Stigma and End the Cycle of Abuse.

As a certified Master Resiliency Instructor, Jakia also offers customized life-changing Resiliency Coaching sessions.
