Wake Forest photographer Flavi Huff will speak from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, March 5, as a part of the Stories of Resilience series organized by InStepp, Inc., a Durham-based nonprofit helping women overcome challenges and succeed personally and professionally.
During the free, virtual event Huff will share how she overcame the barriers she faced as a victim of domestic violence and as a United States immigrant. Titled “Crossing Borders: Nightmares to Naturalization,” Huff says she will highlight the important contributions immigrants bring to our society and the fundamental roles they play in the future of our economy.
Born and raised in Brazil, Huff moved to America in 2005 where she started her new life as a nanny in Florida. After meeting her husband and starting a family, she taught herself photography and built her dream business that is thriving today.
Huff’s most prized possessions are her memories of loved ones, yet she has very few photographs from her childhood. She has made it her mission to help families celebrate life’s milestones and capture memories they will cherish forever.
Register to hear Flavi’s story at www.eventbrite.com/e/stories-of-resilience-virtual-event-brought-to-you-by-instepp-inc-tickets-139924988407. There is no admission fee, but donations are encouraged.
Huff was originally scheduled to present during InStepp’s International Women’s Conference last year in spring 2020, but the event was one of the first cancellations due to the pandemic.
