MEET TINA REINE

TINA REINE

As a child, when I spoke the kids would mock my speech and make it sound as though they were talking through their noses. It happened so often that I avoided speaking around others.

But, my family and stuffed animals never made fun of me.

As an adult, speaking didn’t get any easier. I spent my career ducking out of meetings that would potentially require me to speak. My first job after getting my MBA was at an investment bank. I still remember the day I got called on to answer a question in front of my peers. Instead of answering using my voice, I wrote the answer on a piece of paper, pretending to have laryngitis.

Not speaking up for yourself can have devastating results. Five years ago, my life took an unexpected turn. I was the victim of severe online harassment from an ex-boyfriend-turned-stalker. It was so extreme that it shut down my career and my social life.

I became passionate about raising awareness around cyber harassment, its debilitating effects and how it leaves victims feeling powerless. After all the years of bullying and, later, cyberbullying, I finally decided to stand up for myself. I remembered my grandfather was a Toastmaster. He was a smart man, and if he found value in it, I would too. 

SPEAKING

Tina gives an aerial performance, her passion that helped herfind my voice, to capture the kids and draw them in. Even though their passion will be different, seeing a performance after hearing her story will have great impact and make a memorable impression on them, leaving them with the strong desire to find something they love to do, something that makes them feel strong and confident.

AERIAL PERFORMANCES

Tina gives an aerial performance, her passion that helped herfind my voice, to capture the kids and draw them in. Even though their passion will be different, seeing a performance after hearing her story will have great impact and make a memorable impression on them, leaving them with the strong desire to find something they love to do, something that makes them feel strong and confident.

WORKSHOPS

Through discussion and writing exercises Tina leads the kids to explore ways in which they feel “different” or struggle. Then there is a discussion that will help them uncover what type of expression (passion) resonates with them – one that will ultimately help them find their voice.

Experiential Empowerment piece

An opportunity for the kids to try the fun, confidence building aerial silks moves they saw on stage. This will give them the chance to experience what passion helped her find my voice. By participating in what “the lady on stage did” the message will have more of a lasting impact on the kids. It has been proven that when a speaker integrates the physicality of a story the listener remembers it better. Tina currently teach kids from age 7 to adults - whatever their shape or size she can get them into several incredible picture perfect poses the very first time they take a lesson from her.
