We're absolutely delighted to introduce our show emcee, Junita Flowers.

If you were in the 2016 show audience, her name will sound familiar, as she mesmerized our audience that year with her story, “Lost and Found.”

We’re all so very lucky that she will be the one to hold our LTYM Twin Cities audience's —our village's — hand as you listen and learn from — read: laugh and cry with — the 13 women who will be on the Riverview stage this year. We can’t wait to welcome Junita to the Riverview stage once again!
