Experience: It's All About You Seminar
Latrese Kabuya is driven by her passion to uplift and encourage especially young girls and women. In 2015, Latrese hosted her inaugural It’s All About You (IAAY) Empowerment seminar for girls ages 8 – 18.
IAAY promotes healthy self-esteem, self-image and provides practical tools to help young girls overcome peer pressure and the host of issues they face today. The goal of the seminar was to change girls from the inside out and to help them find purpose!
Because of its impact and the overwhelming response from both girls and their guardians, IAAY is now an annual event (hosted in the Summer) attracting hundreds of girls nationally.
As an Empowerment Coach, and because of her relatability and energy, Latrese is a frequently sought after speaker. She is a featured speaker on a local radio show. Her segment is called, “Motivation Monday with Latrese”. She participates in Women’s Wellness seminars, beauty clinics and is committed to giving back to the community at large as an active member, advisor, and chair of several after school initiatives as well as mentoring programs.
Latrese is also a professional skin care and makeup artist with over 20 years in the beauty industry. Her experience includes countless runway shows, weddings, and photo-shoots. She has freelanced for Estee Lauder, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Lancôme, and Kiehl's and is a makeup artist to celebrities.
As a featured guest on local television shows; Better KCTV5 and KCLive41, and a contributing writer to sheKC and The Real KC, Latrese stays true to her passion, using her platform and her organization Let’s Get PRETTY (Prepare Redefine and Express the Total You) not only for makeup and skin care advice, but to coach women and girls of all ages to embrace a healthy self-esteem. Latrese also has an online talk show, Insights with Latrese.
Latrese is a wife and mother to five beautiful girls, Britney, Morgan, Leah, Naomi and Amina, and a surrogate mother and mentor to countless girls in her community.
She has a deep conviction, rooted in her Christian belief, that we are uniquely and individually created. She and family are proud members of Harvest Church in Kansas City, MO.
In her spare time, Latrese enjoys spending time with her family and of course hosting her own Internet YouTube Series, “Insights with Latrese,” where she passionately empowers individuals to live their best lives!
