Dr. Nora Fahlberg
Originally in healthcare, my career was tragically shortened by lousy drivers. But it’s hard to keep me down, so I reinvented myself by taking my skills into the film industry part-time while teaching life sciences in adult education. Fortunately, I’d trained myself to get over my fear of public speaking by….doing lots of public speaking. Facing our fears, something, something, something…
After I got over the fear, I found that I really enjoyed the public speaking that I did as community service. It turned out that I loved teaching. I love learning, and having fun learning, and helping people. Seeing the light come on in people’s eyes when they understand never gets old.
Recently I decided that I wanted to teach again. But I wanted a different topic. Something challenging. Something meaningful. So I pondered.
What was needed? What could I do?
It was then that the #MeToo movement and its stories resonated with me.
Everyone seems to be focused on the aftermath. Sometimes problems require a proactive approach… and so it was that this talk came into being.
And that’s enough about me, because this project isn’t about that. What’s important are our young women, our sisters, daughters, nieces, granddaughters.
