Deborah Jiang Stein’s personal story of resilience resonates with all. Her search to overcome adversity is inspirational, for she finds triumph against great odds that began as a special needs and at-risk child: born heroin-addicted in a federal prison, Deborah chronicles the challenges that cursed her childhood, all compounded with her multi-racial identity. After a life on the edge, she re-frames herself into the positive force she is today: writer, entrepreneur, mother, inventor… wild mind.
From rebellion to survival, Deborah conveys through her unique perspective that although progress is not always linear, it is always possible. She encourages others with her belief that a positive attitude supported by education, creativity, and critical relationships are key to resilience and personal change. Deborah’s presentations are relevant not only for those in the margins, but for anyone who desires to transform and grow.
