The main point of this talk is to show resilience in life. Life tends to challenge us with hardships, but there exists an innate capacity within each of us to persist, adapt, and navigate through them; and, the process of finding “purpose” by navigating through the unknown fears and struggles, “Uncharted Horizons”, one can uncover a new path for personal growth, fulfillment, and realization of true purpose.
