WORDAFUL is back on tour! The most recent event took place this past Saturday, March 19th 2022 at the W Hotel in Chicago. After going on a live event hiatus due to the pandemic, Liz Hernandez is taking WORDAFUL across the country with stops in Miami, New York, Chicago, San Diego and Los Angeles. The digital platform that focuses on the importance of how we communicate with ourselves and each other, will be collaborating with female leaders in the community, women-run businesses and special guests along the way to celebrate Women’s History Month this March.

Through WORDAFUL, Hernandez has created a video and live event series that brings women together and creates a platform that encourages women to share their stories, while making a genuine connection.
“I am thrilled to bring WORDAFUL’s meaningful conversations across the country this spring. Through WORDAFUL, we have designed a new form of storytelling that I hope will encourage and connect us to thepower of words. Together, we can learn how to change our internal and external dialogue, one that supports more meaningful relationships and lives. WORDAFUL has built a safe space for guests to be vulnerable and create a positive change,” says Liz Hernandez, founder of WORDAFUL.
Chicago was overtaken by a fun storm on Saturday when the WORDAFUL tour made a stop in the Windy City at the W Lakeshore Hotel. During the event, Hernandez met with fans and signed autographed journals. Her warmth and humble nature made the attendees feel welcome, understood and seen. She emphasized the importance of sisterhood and women supporting one another. Hernandez shared her personal story of loss and grief along with pursuit for happiness and love. Special speakers at this event were Chicago podcaster Case Kenny and behavior coach Kayla Jeter. Kenny shared his experience on dating and men, while Jeter shared her personal story of loss and grief and how she overcame it. Attendees also had the chance to meditate and take part in a prize raffle valued over $750.
