Mark Twain said, "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." However, Sunny Hostin will tell you that the most important day in your life is the day you decide who you will not be. Sunny will detail how an early trauma in her life defined who she would not become and led her on the path of discovering her possibilities.

She is arrogant and egotistical but this talk changed my life. She is saying the day you decide who you do NOT want to be is as important as the day when you find your purpose. You break away from the group and decide to think for yourself. Amazing.27/10/2015
