About this Talk:
Sometimes your biggest weakness can be a superpower. Growing up with anaphylaxis has put a unique spin on the perspective that Jennifer Huggins has moved forward in relationships, business and life. Since birth, she has battled with severe asthma, food allergies and sports injuries that have been misdiagnosed by professionals, misunderstood by her peers and landed her in ICU countless times.
Spend a moment with Jennifer, to shift your perspective on the reality that you’re presented with and the outcomes you have control over.
