Past Events


“It was a pleasure collaborating with Emilee and Hannah from Tru Faces. As our main contact, Emilee was wonderful to work with – very professional, quick to respond and accommodating. Tru Faces hosted two informative and engaging webinars for Mohawk College alumni on job seeking for people with disabilities and dispelling common myths and misconceptions about people about disabilities. Thank you, Emilee and Hannah, for hosting these fantastic sessions benefiting Mohawk graduates.”

“Tru Faces was an immense asset to have both present and participate at CNIB’s 2022 Connecting the Dots conference. Emilee’s effervescent personality was truly infectious and shone through during two incredibly well-crafted presentations that were thought-provoking and left listeners feeling inspired and motivated. Tru Faces also contributed to our event swag bag, donating hundreds of lanyards. Our attendees appreciated seeing the talent in our community from entrepreneurs like Emilee. Thank you for volunteering your time, talent and merchandise to help make our annual conference a smashing success! We look forward to continued collaboration with Tru Faces.”

“The Edmonton CNIB had the pleasure of having Tru Faces be our guest speakers during our youth leadership monthly session. Emilee and Hannah spoke about what Tru Faces is all about and how they are making an impact to educate people on what living with a disability is all about. They were a great example for our youth to learn that they not only can help their community, but that they can take their ideas and put them into action. Emilee was also able to chat about what it is like to be going to college with vision loss. This was really amazing for our youth to hear because many of them were considering going to post secondary in the next couple of years. Emilee did a great job to explain the challenges that she was able to overcome and how her experiences helped to empower her and continue to use her skills to advocate for herself and others with disabilities.”

“Emilee Schevers came in to talk to a group of students at my school about invisible disabilities. She used dialogue specific language to get the point across, but also made meaningful connections with her audience. Her presentation was informative, inspiring, and intriguing. I recommend booking a time with Tru Faces to as a form if advocacy and meaningful conversation.”

“Emilee delivered a powerful presentation at the Fighting Blindness Canada Young Leaders Summit that highlighted how she is making a positive impact as a young entrepreneur with vision loss. She is not only an accomplished public speaker but excels at moderating and mediating small group discussions on many topics including disability issues. Emilee speaks confidently and from the heart and it was a pleasure to work alongside her and learn more about her perspective.”
