Since I was a little girl I always wanted to be a writer and I just never had the courage to embrace that. So a couple of years ago I started speechwriting for others and every time I put words on the page, those words represented a little bit of my heart and soul. So today [at a TEDx talk] … I’ve given the gift to myself of speechwriting.”
