Author and Educator Julie Wurm tells us a story at TEDxSF this past week about how getting ‘beaten’ at 23 and landing in a coma for five months as a result of it, has changed her life. Her work focuses on cultivating critical thinking and inquiry skills in students and reawakening the original joy that lives in discovery.

Core takeaways in my words, not hers: relish every moment, believe that you can make a difference, have the resilience and courage to say no, move forward and move on. Part I of her story embedded below. Part II can be found here.
