“Fear is a big blocker for me and it felt like she was talking directly to me. I tried hard not to cry during her time because her message really spoke to me. ¬†I loved Illuminate this year, I put myself out there more and met some great women at my table and introduced myself to some people I recognized across the room, which is out of my comfort zone…I loved and it was very timely for me.”
