There’s no getting around it; life involves tragedy and misfortune. Sometimes you’re dealt a hand from which you feel you just can’t come back; perhaps you’re dealt two, maybe even three. Brittany Piper is here to tell you that no matter your circumstances, not only can you overcome your obstacles, but you can thrive from them. In this keynote, Brittany offers herself as a prime example of successfully turning pain into progress. Despite the chapters in her life having been filled with grief and hardship, Brittany is still determined to use her pain as a motivator.
By accepting the trials, she endured, she was able to strengthen her character, ultimately allowing herself to become a beacon of hope and resilience for others. Brittany believes that rather than allowing hardships to curtail your future, you should utilize those obstacles as vehicles to help others. After becoming an international activist, humanitarian and social entrepreneur fighting for women’s rights, she has found a great deal of healing and resolve in her life. Brittany will be the first to tell you; she’s determined to live a courageous life, not a safe one. She wants to help you do the same. Brittany Piper is a rape survivor, women’s rights scholar, and activist who has traversed the globe in the fight against sexual violence and women’s rights. A graduate of the Indiana University School of Journalism, Brittany holds a degree in Photojournalism, with a minor in Women’s Studies.
