"I appreciated how Fallon gave us plenty of opportunities for questions/feedback so she could tailor the session to what people wanted. I also really liked the use of the "poll" feature."

"I loved this event so much. I loved how engaging Fallon was and how willing she was to let people ask questions that were personal. I also really appreciated that she was willing to stay on after the event to talk to people and answer more questions. That was really great and made the event feel even more intimate especially with such a vulnerable topic."
