    Identity Crisis: Finding Power in Defining Yourself

    In today's world, there is very little if any time devoted to figuring out one of life's most important and most ignored questions: Who am I?  The power of this question is not immediately apparent, as it seems like a pretty straightforward answer.  But is it really?  How you choose to identify yourself can distinguish you as a leader, can influence your interactions with coworkers, family, and friends, can contribute to stress both positively or negatively, and can change the landscape of your job search and your life. And that's all just the beginning.  As part of this session, attendees will:
    • Learn the distinction between internal and external validation
    • Begin to answer the  questions: "Who am I?" and "Who do I want to be?"
    • Be empowered to redefine the way others see and interact with you
    • Combat impostor syndrome by identifying your truest self
    • Overcome or avoid the dreaded mid-life crisis

    Faizun’s drive to create significant life changes through entrepreneurship stems from her own personal experience as a corporate refugee. As an executive in the high-stakes, high-stress world of corporate America, she found herself living an increasingly unhealthy, unbalanced life with little time for what she really loved to do, with loved ones. In 2015, after almost a decade in corporate America, she got her break by getting laid off. Instead of immediately jumping back, Faizun began a deeply introspective journey to intentionally redesign her career, and her life. 

    Faizun received her BA in Women’s Studies and Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy and a Master’s in Business Administration from the Johns Hopkins University. She is also a graduate of Stanford University’s acclaimed Social Entrepreneurship Program.

    Conversant in multiple languages, Kamal has been described as the “consummate connector”.  Coming from an unusual mix of work background (The Franchise Pros, World Bank, Johns Hopkins University and Verizon) and life experiences (growing up in Asia and Africa), she is able to see patterns in seemingly unconnected things and forge connections in the most unlikely places.
