Last person rescued from 9/11 Twin Towers rubble
Author of "Angel in The Rubble"
Inspirational speaker on adversity and courage

Genelle Guzman-McMillan, the last person rescued from the rubble of the Twin Towers after the 9/11 terrorist attack, has an inspirational story to share with audiences at various events. As an Office Administrative Assistant for the Port Authority of New York, Genelle was in the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. She now speaks at events, sharing her story of adversity and finding courage during the crisis. Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Genelle migrated to the United States in 2000. After working several small jobs, she landed a position as an Office Assistant for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey in 2001. On that fateful day, while working on the 64th floor of the north tower, Genelle witnessed the second tower being struck by the plane involved in the terrorist attacks. She was instructed to evacuate but never made it to the bottom before the tower collapsed, leaving her trapped under the rubble. After 27 hours, with her head pinned against a concrete block, Genelle was rescued from the debris. Today, she shares her story as a survivor of the 9/11 attacks. Genelle visits the memorial fountain to remember the victims and volunteers at the 9/11 Tribute Centre and for the American Red Cross. She has received awards for her bravery and has been commended by Senators and Mayors of New York. Despite facing the possibility of leg amputation and heart complications, Genelle recovered. Her story of being trapped for 27 hours encourages others to pray, have faith, and trust in a higher power during adversity. She has authored the book "Angel in The Rubble: The Miraculous Rescue of 9/11's Last Survivor" and is a true inspiration. To hire Genelle Guzman-McMillan for an event, contact PepTalk.
