Pulling Back the Curtain: Life as a First Lady
Eliza Reid is First Lady of Iceland and an entrepreneur. She talks about the surreal moments that led to becoming First Lady in the most gender-equal country in the world, navigating her highly visible but undefined and unofficial role. There are joys and opportunities as well as challenges of becoming primarily known as someone’s spouse, and the outdated assumptions that go along with that. A talk for anyone who wants to make the most of unexpected twists of fate, defy expectations, and stay true to one’s own goals even when your life partner often holds the spotlight.
