Liz Murray, national speaker and author of Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival and My Journey from Homeless to Harvard. This is a story of success despite being homeless and raised by drug-addicted parents.
Liz will spend 30 minutes sharing her personal story She will then open it up for Q&A with the audience via moderator.
From homeless to Harvard…it is an unlikely turn of events. Liz Murray’s life is a triumph over adversity and a stunning example of the importance of dreaming big. Murray was raised in the Bronx by two loving but drug-addicted parents. She grew up in poverty, often without enough food, chronically absent from school and most of all, struggling to connect her education to a viable future. Today, Murray is a passionate advocate for underserved youth. As Co-founder of The Arthur Project, a mentoring program that works intensively with at-risk youth through the duration of middle school, Murray is working to end generational poverty through relationship-based learning. She believes that when it comes to a child facing even the most extreme adversity, it is having a relationship with at least one caring, dedicated adult that can make all the difference. Liz is passionate about speaking on the importance of personal motivation, transforming problems into opportunities, and what it takes to make a difference in people’s lives.
