Jimmy Westerheim wants us to reflect on what we have learned from our toughest challenges.

What happens when you lose your entire identity and ability to walk normally at the age of 27? Jimmy had not stopped to reflect on what he wanted or what he was really good at before he was forced to. He shattered a vertebrae and lost his ability to do sports and be his active self, working at the biggest international shipping company in Singapore. 18 months after the accident he was on a plane to Afghanistan for his first mission on Doctors Without Borders. Two years later he created the world’s first life experience library. In this morning talk, Jimmy Westerheim will share his unique life story to teach us what we can learn from the things we have lost and how creativity can bloom from our toughest challenges.
