Sharon Blady, former Manitoba Minister of Health, educator specializing in Indigenous and feminist issues, social justice and mental health advocate, and survivor of cancer and domestic abuse, who believes the purpose of her journey is to use the challenges, and opportunities, she has been presented in life, to benefit of others.

Sharon uses the confluence of these experiences to reflect on how each has made her stronger, more empathetic, and how each of us can harness our experiences to grow personally, to assist and empower others, and to build a better and more compassionate world.
