Lizzie’s talk, quite simply had me in tears. Her courage and positive mindset to her condition is inspiring. She turned her can’ts into cans, or changed her perception on the matter. Some definite food for thought. In answer to the title of the talk, I have no idea how I define myself. I used to, but I don’t live in Dubai anymore, I’m not a student who recently graduated. Equally, those are still part of who I am.
Negativity, we all have it in our lives in some forms. Whether in work, at home or due to our own perceptions of ourselves. I am going to try and use the negative channel as a catalyst to change. As Lizzie says, “use their negativity to light my fire.”
