I Lost My Identity When I Graduated, But…
How Mpowher Athlete, Jeannie Woller lost her identity but found her worth. This TEDx Talk "addresses exactly what it means to be a former athlete and the difficulties attached to existing in a post athletic world" - Jeannie Woller
The inevitability of change and transition is petrifying; our identity is constantly called into question as things end, begin, or shift. As a just-graduated college student and former D1 soccer player, the largest components of how Jeannie identified had been stripped, leaving her raw and exposed. However it was only in that most vulnerable state, that she caught glimpses of the person she would become.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
