• Public Speaking

    Over the last six years, I have spoken in more than a dozen countries (US, Colombia, Egypt, Brazil, Hong Kong, Mexico, among others) both to large crowds and very small, private groups. I have presented internationally at TEDx events​, addressed big companies like Google and the U.N., keynoted conferences like the Retail Industry Leaders Association and Social Media Week. I have lectured at many universities and colleges including Columbia, MIT, Harvard, and Yale.


    I am also considered an international ambassador for the happiness movement. I am grateful for the opportunity to have empowered people across three continents and swapped stories with politicians, former guerrilla combatants, and countless community leaders.
