Greetings my fellow ODU Black alumni!

My name is Lauryn Johnson, best known as "Elle Jay". I am a proud alumna of Old Dominion University (ODU), where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations in 2010. I am delighted to serve as your facilitator in partnership with the ODU Black Alumni Chapter (ODU BAC) for their Vision Board Sip & Brunch at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, January 23, 2021.

Thank you for registering for this great event and initiative! I have something special for you; it's my Vision 2021 Precision Workbook! This workbook is valued at $48 but it's yours FREE since I love my alma mater and BAC. 





We'll go through the Vision 2021 Precision Workbook as a warm-up exercise towards the beginning of the event.
