Developing the Kindness Muscle
Orly Wahba, Founder/CEO Life Vest Inside, NY
Orly shares her personal journey of overcoming adversity through her childhood and adolescent years and how kindness played a huge role in developing her sense of self value and self love. Orly addresses the deeper meaning of kindness and how even the smallest gesture can result in powerful connections; the greatest being a connection to oneself. Orly explains that dealing with social issues such as bullying, depression, substance abuse and violence from the “anti” approach, issues are only heightened. Through her story, she illustrates how we can prevent those said issues from materializing. “The answer is simpler than you think,” she explains. Audience members will be left with a greater understanding of their inherent value, realizing that while we all have insecurities we all play a significant role and are an important piece of the puzzle.
