Beyond Honored, Beyond Excited, and Beyond Scared

Beyond Honored, Beyond Excited, and Beyond Scared

I will be taking the stage for TEDx Philadelphia (May 15th) and a similarly styled show called Speakers Who Dare in NYC (March 26th). My inner critic is rearing its ugly head and I am terribly nervous but also trying to lean into this new challenge.. I hope so much to use these opportunities to craft a talk that resonates and inspires… Wish me luck ;)

How to be an activist…

I’ve been talking a lot lately about how we can all be activists in our own circles whether that means within our families, work places, neighborhoods, schools, etcetera.  But a friend pointed out that she’s tired of people (like me - ahem) encouraging her to “do better” without any real strategies or pointers on how to actually do that.  So… my first blog post is dedicated to my friend, Lena, and intended to provide at least a starting point if you’d like to be an activist.
