Roen Higgins’ passion is to Engage, Educate and Empower others to find their unique gift which she believes is a therapy of a lifetime. She is an active Special Care Counsellor, inspirational event planner and a community change agent, far from the hyper at-risk youth once entangled in the system. This Montreal native has overcome the domino effects of a family suffering from mental illness, living in foster homes and not having an address to call her own. Roen is known to flip words and paint a picture through her diction, she always used her-story to help others. Her project Fresh Cut: A Barbershop Project is a series of events that capture stories throughout time by focusing on the dialogue between young men and elders from the community in the barbershop.
