About the Event

At an early age, Rhea Carmon realized the power of positive thinking.  Her mother named her RheaSunshine because she always searched for the bright side.  At the age of 9, she was paralyzed for months and still found a way to overcome.  Through many health issues, she has found the joy in learning and teaching.    Believing that every person can achieve their own success and be the best form of themselves each day, Rhea challenges students and staff to return to the joy of learning in order to make school a place we all want to be.

Rhea often says that poetry saved her life.  She uses the lifeline that she found to create a connection and safe space for those that she has the pleasure of inspiring with words.  She loves finding the beauty in schools and organizations and using it to motivate and inspire audiences.

“Burn with the motivation that only poetry can inspire!”

- RheaSunshine
