Guest Keynote: Face It. Embrace It. Defy It. Conquer It!
As a young girl, Victoria Arlen came down with two rare neurological disorders which put her in a vegetative state for four years. She was locked within herself, unable to communicate with those around her. When she finally emerged from the coma, she was paralyzed from the waist down because of damage to her spine. However, Victoria didn’t lose her strength or steadfast determination, and went on to win a gold medal for swimming at the London 2012 Paralympics. Then, after years of therapy, she regained the ability to walk and realized her dream of becoming one of the youngest on-air hosts ever hired by ESPN. In her keynote, Victoria shares her own story and how to confront any challenge life delivers. She speaks about the perspective we give to the obstacles in our lives, how to change it, and how to push off of those roadblocks to achieve greater heights.
