June 9th’s Coffee Conversation features Javacia Harris Bowser, a professionally trained journalist and founder of See Jane Write.
Javacia was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer in January 2020.

In this Coffee Conversation, Javacia will share how walking and writing helped her cope with her cancer diagnosis and treatment.
She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Alabama and a master’s degree in journalism from the University of California at Berkeley.

Because of See Jane Write, Bowser was selected as one of the smartest women in Birmingham by the Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham’s SMART Party Committee, selected as one of Birmingham’s Top 40 Under 40 by the Birmingham Business Journal in 2015 and honored as one of Birmingham’s “Women Who Inspire” by Girls on the Run. In 2016, she was included in Southern Living magazine’s list of Innovators Changing the South alongside household names like Dolly Parton and Reese Witherspoon and selected as one of 30 Women Who Shape the State by Alabama Media Group. In 2018, Bowser was a speaker at TEDxBirmingham.
