Many people would ask me, "How do you stay so strong?"
Well, it's not easy and there are many days that I'm not resilient and feel really fragile.
Honesty has become my favourite characteristic because I believe that it's what draws people to me. Being transparent and honest about my story has allowed me to build a strong network.
I wondered how others dealt with their major challenges. I took my background in public relations and created a space to share the stories of EXTRAordinary people and help others be resilient too.
My goal is to show that it IS possible to bounce back from challenges, and not only survive but thrive. All of the people I interview have taken a problem and made an opportunity out of it.
Some of the resilient people you will meet are Niam Jain, a teenager with autism who is a world-renowned artist; Jason Fiorotto, a man who created a foundation to comfort cancer patients in the wake of his wife's passing; and Susan Mintz, a woman who became an outspoken HIV/AIDS and hospice advocate when her husband passed away from the disease.
I want to inspire people and encourage them to find their platform and move forward - take a problem and make an opportunity out of it. I've heard it called a "PROBORTUNITY".
