The Talk: We Are So Much More
Why does it seem to be so difficult for us to leave our pasts behind us? In her talk, titled “We Are So Much More,” Glory speaks about her firm belief in the idea that our pasts do not have to indicate the road we head down in the future. She expands on the notion that, despite what individuals go through, it is never too late for us to rise above our circumstances, ultimately getting us from where we are to where we want to be.
