The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. She was abducted in 2002 and held prisoner for nine months. Smart will share insight to overcoming extreme adversity in a traumatic situation.
Her example and life now is a daily demonstration that there really is life after a tragic event. Elizabeth’s presentation not only tells her story, but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity and not allowing your past to dictate your life’s future.
