We launched this video page for women who prefer to speak their story rather than write it. Some of these videos were recorded at international conferences we were fortunate to attend. We invite you to share one of YOUR stories of overcoming the fears, beliefs, or circumstances that once held you back in any way. We know that your story can encourage and inspire many other women & girls.
