“Fear can be a catalyst to make positive changes in your life. Welcoming opportunities and making a conscious choice to persevere even when frightened can lead us a to a world of unimaginable possibilities.”
Eleanor Moseman is an accomplished photographer, writer, and explorer that was born in Dayton, Ohio but raised in the Appalachia region of Virgina. She has been based in China for eight years and focusing her work and time on women among religious cultures, the working class, and those enslaved in poverty; she gives a voice to many that may never be heard or recognized.
A compelling and inspiring storyteller, Eleanor was a featured speaker to an audience of 900, this year at TEDxShanghaiWomen. Now, she brings her heartfelt and passionate message that “It's Time to Live Fearlessly” to one of the many places she calls “home”.
The TEDxShanghaiWomen presentation is planned to be released to the public over the next couple weeks but join us at Grassroots for an extended and unedited presentation from Eleanor. She will give us more stories while including some of her more personal stories that aren't often given to the public.
Stay for questions and answers and welcoming a supportive discussion about using fear as a propelling component through difficulties.
