May I take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Crystal Williams UD. I am the Founder of Thinking Out Loud; which is a conference held each year which promotes self love and empowerment of women all over the world. I am also a Poet, Author and Motivational Speaker who was born and raised in London, UK and of African decent.

I have won awards for my contribution to society and my praise has been sung by the British and African media for the difference made in people’s lives.

I enjoy riding in the whirlwind of emotions with others, so that hurt, pain and love is not lost in translation. I have written a number of books; ’Still in Transition‘, which is a collection of poems. ‘WOMEN, SIDE CHICS and THE OTHERS‘, which is a book that explores women’s insecurities, infidelity and how a woman measures her worth. ‘Resuscitate Me‘ which is a women’s journey to finding self-love.
