Challenging Bias: Bravery, Boldness, and Badassery  



Stacy Bernal is a self-proclaimed Recovering Nobody. After a lifetime of mistakes and mediocrity, her life turned around after she crossed the finish line of her first marathon in 2009.

Through the power of a growth mindset, Stacy teaches audiences that they have the capacity to be and instigate the change they wish to see in the world.
