How To Use Your Difference Make A Difference As Someone In Global Transition

Last weekend I was in DC for the annual FIGT conference and it was such a beautiful experience because I got to meet people that I had been interviewing, talking to and collaborating with for the past year and it was such a thrill. When someone asked me what the experience was like, you know speaking at my first conference about something I am so passionate about. I told her that it was such a rush. I went from being nervous pacing around the venue prior to the speech to feeling and amazing surge of energy right before the speech to relief that I had jus delivered the speech without mistakes to being humbled by people clapping at something I had just said for six minutes and thirty seconds. I've never quite felt anything like it but I honestly feel like this type of conversation is more of what we need to have in today's society. 

We need to learn how to celebrate and embrace our differences.

Defeating the "supposed to" syndrome

Breaking down the "Berlin Walls" that exist today and

Connecting in a digital age.
