Defining Moments in Life

In his poignant TED Talk, writer and lecturer Andrew Solomon weaves together tales of courage and triumph, including his own childhood struggles, to deliver a powerful message on the significance of personal hardships as defining moments in our lives, instrumental to finding meaning and shaping our identities. 

“Forge meaning. Build identity. Forge meaning. Build identity. And then invite the world to share your joy.”
