Sometimes, great tragedy is the catalyst for great adventure.
Not long after her dear friend killed herself, Amelia Torres placed her own call to a suicide prevention hotline. Mental illness and depression run in her family, and were part of her DNA. Or so she thought. Ultimately Amelia realized there was no one in the world who could help her. Just like there was no way for her to help her friend when she felt so desperate. So she flipped her emotions on their head, and turned the darkest hour of her life into a call for adventure. Find out what can happen when you open yourself up to the power of “yes.”
For the theme of “Risk” at our April 2016 event, CreativeMornings/Austin actually had two separate speakers—and their identities were not announced in advance. Attendees had to take a risk and pick a talk without knowing who was speaking until they arrived in one of two rooms. Click here to watch the other “Risk” talk by Clara Bensen.
