As we all witnessed last night, when one person finds the words to share her story, it not only changes her life, but the lives of everyone who hears it.

When I decided to start HER Resiliency Center, all I had was my story. I can’t even begin to express how inspiring it was to watch the artists get up on stage and help us understand their experiences and strength through their stories. Thank you so much.

I also want to acknowledge how incredibly powerful it was to have so many thoughtful, dedicated supporters there, whether it was coaches from Story District, our partner organizations or our volunteers. Thank you.
