What a night it was to launch my Keynote Speaking- Surviving Trauma-in Wangaratta.
Over 80 guests arrived and you could have heard a pin drop as Tania spoke about her life experiences. Some were absolutely shocking and others were humorous.
It was exciting to see so many local faces and people coming to support this event.
Tania is available to provide insight into the impact of trauma as she steps you through her journey, highlighting the importance of resilience and positive thoughts.
The presentation describes how sexual abuse changed her life and highlights how she was able to go from victim, to survivor, and ultimately becoming a member of Parliament.
This is a presentation not to be missed. Students should hear this message which will change how they think about their own mental health and their personal journey and experiences in life.
