My superpower is transparency

Speech HugVideo from my keynote below! This past weekend, I had the really wonderful opportunity to give a closing keynote at the Students with Diabetes national conference. I spoke about the superpowers we gain from the challenges we go through. I shared some stories from others and a few of my own –

– At the start, I taught hula, because that’s how I wake people up at 8:30am on a Sunday.

– At 12:34 I tell a story about how my mom taught me to use my superpower of voice.

– At 20:30, while talking about the superpower of vision, you’ll see why I think some of my superpowers are transparency and vulnerability, because I share an incredibly tough and personal story from last year.

– And at 42:02, some true superheroes took the challenge to identify their own supowerpowers they’ve gained from the challenges they’ve been through, then share on stage.

Group SpeechIt takes a lot to not only publicly share our challenges, but also to publicly declare our strengths. Props to those who got on stage and to all of the attendees who did the work. There is POWER in being vulnerable and I’m proud of this crew for choosing to be that brave.
