This talk is to discuss how people can turn their pain into power, and ultimately find their purpose. When you’re at the intersection of pain you must choose power above all to find your true purpose. Like roads intersecting, think of pain as the red light and your power as the green light. I stood at the largest crossroad of my life when I had to receive a hysterectomy at the age of 31, after decades of suffering from endometriosis. My company, Turning Tulips was created, to help other females suffer less while Making Periods Pretty! LeShannon Wright is a NJIT MBA student, from New Jersey. She is the founder and CEO of Turning Tulips, a company she created with a mission of Making Periods Pretty. After nearly two decades of suffering from endometriosis and later adenomyosis, LeShannon received a hysterectomy at the age of 31. She vowed to use her voice to make a difference in the menstrual health of young girls and women. Now she shares her powerful stories, tips, and support to help guide females everywhere. LeShannon hopes that Turning Tulips will light the way so that no one suffers to the magnitude that she had. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
