Merriam Webster

I embarked on my journey to become emboldened in 2016, when I returned to the task of finishing the memoir I had started writing years before. Digging into my sometimes painful truth and splaying it onto the page has been a test of courage—not my strongest trait.

And yet, personal growth lies in facing our most painful truths, in doing the things we fear. And so, I persisted.

In writing my story, I have become emboldened. In sharing my story, I have emboldened others.

This page is about you finding your own path to becoming emboldened. What’s your story?

All Zoom events are FREE. Won’t you join me?
