“AND THE DAY CAME WHEN THE RISK TO REMAIN TIGHT IN A BUD WAS MORE PAINFUL THAN THE RISK TO BLOSSOM.” ~ ANAIS NIN
I felt awakened and humbled partaking in the coaching day at the California Institution for Women with Defy Ventures on September 19, 2019. The experience was life changing! The women in the state prison reminded me of the value of second chances and the healing power of human connection.
Defy’s entrepreneurial programs enable one of America’s largest forgotten communities to defy the odds. Ultimately, it’s teaching formerly and currently incarcerated men, women and young adults to empower themselves and flourish. Another personal takeaway is the only person that can set you free from your self-imposed bars is you!
