Every single mom in the world has had mom guilt at one time or another. Kiona William’s monologue will focus on this one, hard fact of #momlife. Following Kiona on Facebook you’ll know that she’s one hilarious chick, but here monologue is a departure from her normally chill and light banter and a real dive into the not so cherry parts of her motherhood journey. The good thing is, we’ve all been there. You will definitely here “Amen” and “been there, done that” from the audience as you listen to Kiona’s monologue. But before our Saturday, May 4th show here’s a chance to get to know her a little more.
Who is Kiona Williams?
Kiona is a wife and mother of 3 pursuing life long prosperity and happiness. She is a graduate of Clarion University and founder of The BELLA Project, a group focused on mentoring and the development of teenage girls.
When asked to sum up her monologue in 3 sentences or less Kiona said…
We are not perfect but we try to be. This monologue is me trying so hard to be the best that I’m consumed with guilt when I’m feeling inadequate and not feeling my best.
If her friends gave her a nickname it would be…
Kiyanla, Always Tryna Fix Someone’s Life
The best piece of advice Kiona’s has gotten about motherhood is…
God created everyone for a purpose. Your job is to raise them with the confidence to find it on their own.
Kiona’s favorite monologue in this year’s show is…
Leeann’s monologue. I cried true tears of joy for her and her son. Her story is a true example of God’s grace!
Kiona’s favorite song and least favorite song are…
Beyoncé Die With You is my favorite. Any song created by a mumble rapper is my least favorite.
What growth have you experienced being a part of the Brown Mama Monologues?
It has caused me to do a lot of self reflection and deep diving into emotions that I may not have been prepared for but it is all for the best!
