Freeman began speaking in front of audiences in 2nd grade when she recited a poem (The Creation) before the entire student body, faculty, and staff in the courtyard of her elementary school. "I remember thinking, as though it were yesterday, that I didn’t need to be afraid because I had prepared for the performance and, if I made a mistake, no one would know it if I didn’t show it. I gave it everything I had, and then some. From that day forward, I was invited to speak at local churches, family functions, and community events," she recalls.
