Building Genuine Connections


Hi, I'm Rowena


When I was a kid, my main goal was to spark joy in those around me. Whenever someone was upset, I would do anything goofy to bring a smile to their face. At the time, I didn’t realize that being goofy only creates temporary smiles.

It wasn’t until I was a little older that I realized some people hid behind those smiles to deal with their unhappy, uninspired, and unsatisfied lives. This realization left me wondering, what can I do to solve it?

I can validate their feelings through authentic storytelling.

Rowena Whitson Symbol

To me, authentic storytelling is creating genuine connections with my audience rather than settling for empty performances. I choose to sincerely represent the characters I’m given by delving into my unique process and devoting my time to uncovering each detail.

Like a unicorn, each individual is their own unique person with stories that need to be discovered and told.

My life story has expanded to include acting, modeling, dancing, and reiki healing. Through all of these methods, I am able to inspire imagination, initiate creative conversations, and ignite light in people all around the world.
