Debra Alfarone is a gifted, inspirational speaker whose personal story resonates. She bared her soul in her 2015 TEDxSBU Talk entitled, “The secret I held my whole life – and how changing 3 words set me free.”

Debra empowers audiences to think about the ‘labels’ they accept from the world, the words they use when they talk about themselves, and the thoughts they allow to populate their mind. Then, she inspires them to rewrite the story they’re telling the world so they can embody who they want to become.
