When Milestones become Mountains, and How to Climb Them
Presenters: Natalie Starling
At just 1 1/2 years old, Natalie Boatright began a life journey full of adversity after losing her ability to hear for the first few years of her life. Through strength, determination, and imagination, Natalie was able to overcome her “missed milestones” that enabled her to thrive instead of just survive. After feeling invisible for the first few years of her life, Natalie discovered a purpose to share her story after coming to the realization that people are currently living very similarly in isolation, filled with loneliness, and struggling with mental health as we face this global pandemic. Natalie invites you to her March 9th 2x2 series to help offer a fresh perspective on “missed milestones” in our lives, facing our mountains of adversity, and learning to climb them even during COVID-19. During From Milestones to Mountains, Natalie Boatright aims to show each of us how to allow flexibility in the life-lens through which we see our perceived ideas of success! Let this presentation become a light of hope that can create a more fulfilling life by reshaping the perspectives of our past, present, and future experiences in this journey together.
