Liz Murray is not your ordinary Harvard graduate.

In this 12-minute TEDx Talk, Liz shares her moving story about growing up in a household with illicit drugs, sketchy characters, HIV/AIDS and about how she was forced out of her home and onto the streets at the age of 16.

She passionately shows us how to harness the power of possibility by asking the simple question, “what if?“. In asking this question, our pasts no longer matter and instead, we shift the focus to our ability to change the future.

Have you fallen in love with the power of possibility and changed something in your life by asking  “what if”? We’d love for you to share your experience below.
