Queen Author Irish J. Benton. She is one of the Heartfelt Speakers at the "HER STORY Event.

 

Irish is a long time resident of Concord NC. She has three beautiful children Courtney, Tyran and Elijah and one grandchild Izaiah whom she adores.  Irish is a 1988 graduate of Concord Senior High School and also a 2001 graduate of BrookStone Business College, where she obtained a certificate in the Information Processing Program. During her tenor at Brookstone Business College, she was the 2001 Graduating class spokesman’s, reminding the graduating class, that the future was in their hands and anything that they wished to fulfill was in arms reach, you just have to reach for it. Irish had no idea that this would lead to public speaking later in her life. 

 

Queen Irish is the CEO & producer of her online show “Let’s Talk with DivaNation which was founded in March 2015.  After listening to the Steve Harvey syndicated radio morning show one morning, she took Steve’s advice on “Asking God what your gifts and passion are?” from the best seller ‘Act like a Success’.  She took the challenge presented and did just that. She prayed and asked God about her gift & he almost instantly gave her the answer. Irish is no stranger when it comes to meeting people and carrying on a conversation about life, faith and family. After, getting her answer of the gift of talking, she founded her show and began seeking local entertainers, entrepreneurs, book authors and much more to join her on her show. Her platform was set to spotlight African American Women in business but then decided to use that platform for anyone in her community that had positive impactful blessings to share with others through her show. “Breaking His Silence” is her first Novel that she wanted to share with women across the country who are victims or survivors to Domestic Violence. 

 

She is a two time survivor from Domestic Abuse and wishes to help women know that they can survive. Her Motto to Domestic Abuse is simple “You can Live without him, or Die with him. Her prayer has been, that women will choose life and find healthy relationships.
