Bravery exists in all of us. It is the fiber of our being. However, society has taught us that bravery is reserved for heroes who perform acts of grand proportions. That’s certainly what Lisa thought. After experiencing a traumatic incident in her adolescence, Lisa grew increasingly unfamiliar with her own voice and often felt powerless. In 2010, Lisa began writing poetry again and it changed the trajectory of her life. It became clear that she had the power and strength to heal, inspire and do brave things. She was brave all along. In this heartfelt talk, Lisa will share her story, reshape the definition of bravery, and help you recognize your own. Lisa believes our vulnerability is our Brave and our Bravery is Beautiful!

Today, she is breaking down her internal walls. In this courageous talk, Mandi shares her experience of learning strength and bravery through vulnerability and the importance of breaking through our own barriers.
