  • What's a penny worth? - what's our inherent value?

If a penny can be worth 1.7 million dollars, then what are each and every one of us worth? During this empowering talk, Deborah shares the story of how a 1943, rare copper penny became her personal hero. After spending three years in bed, teetering between life and death, she felt worthless. This time on the sidelines became a time of self-reflection, abandonment and discovery about what really counts and why.

  • BULLYosophy! - let's look at the solutions, not the problems!

BULLYosophy is our collective philosophy on bullying: rather than shinning a light on the bullies, we need to concentrate on self-worth!

She shares personal stories of experiences that inspired her to see things differently.
