A Movement committed to transforming obstacles into advantages
We all have a story. How will you tell yours?
For the early part of my life, I battled thoughts that I wasn’t enough or worthy. I felt alone and that there was no one I could turn to. I now know that these same thoughts affect us all at some level.
From the outside perspective, I looked like I had it all. I was a great student, I had lots of friends, I had a supportive family, and I excelled in everything I did. However, underneath I was struggling.
Growing up, it seemed that one thing would happen after another. All I wanted was to be normal; but normal wasn't what I was meant to be.
I let anger, frustration, and depression build within me. Anxiety and fear ruled my life. I was insecure and sought out validation wherever I could find it.
At the end of the day, I felt lost and empty. I couldn’t understand why I had to deal with all of this, but I knew I had to make a change.
I went on a journey to discover who I really was and who I was meant to be. I began to invest in myself, share my story and take my power back.
I believe that knowledge and community are basic human rights. Due to that, I created Own Your Adversity.
Own Your Adversity is all the things I wished I had when I started my journey of figuring out who I was. It's a community of diverse individuals who are each following their own path. It's a bank of knowledge and incredibly powerful resources. To sum it up, it's a movement that empowers each one of us to become more of ourselves. When we become more of our self, we become happier, more confident, and live an overall better life.
