“It felt important to me. And so I sent the email. I took my own advice, and I sent the email.”
On Monday, I had the honor of giving a TED talk. In this episode, I’m talking all about my experience speaking at TEDxBoston’s “Epic Strides” event, celebrating women in sport and the 50-year anniversary of the passing of Title IX. I share how I got this opportunity, my hesitations, and how it went. Plus, I share the talk itself.
