Meagan Good Gives A Riveting Speech At xoNecole & Toyota USA’s ‘Made For Me’ Event In Atlanta

Over the weekend, xoNecole teamed up with Toyota USA for our Made For Me: ATL event. The two-day event took place on March 19th and 20th in honor of Women’s History Month. Attendees participated in workshops and wellness experiences that focused on the mind, body, and spirit. Special guests included astrologist Dani Simone, Christian psychologist Dr. Alduan Tartt, financial consultant, and yoga teacher Dr. Nicole Garner Scott, entertainment host Gia Peppers, and Meagan Good, who was the keynote speaker.

The event curated a safe space with cutting-edge wellness experiences meant to elevate and expand the community with spaces and vibes. Now more than ever, black men and women are seeking safe spaces for their wellness journeys that meet them where they are. This 4-hour experience took over 350 attendees on a journey to discover and connect to their greatest selves with actionable workshops. 

Meagan is a veteran actress who is often admired for her beauty, style, and down-to-earth personality. But what stands out about the Harlem star is her spirituality and her connection with God. The 40-year-old actress took to the stage alongside Gia and opened up to the xoNecole audience exclusively about her faith, how she deals with rejection and how she really feels about the recent social media attention she’s been receiving since announcing her divorce from DeVon Franklin.

“You just have to trust God. I think throughout my life and my personal experience being a woman, being a Black woman, being an actress, being in ministry, all of those things I’ve experienced tremendous amounts of rejection. Feeling misunderstood, feeling judged, feeling attacked all those things and the thing that sustained me is just trusting God. Even if someone else doesn’t get me or doesn’t love me or doesn’t like me. I know that God gets me.”
