Finding Your Voice: A Story of Resilience

Zahra Al-Harazi is a passionate entrepreneur, an internationally-recognized designer and creative director, a sought after inspiring public speaker, a loud crusader for women, youth, and equality, and a mother that beams with pride when you ask about her three kids.
Today, her voice is clear and confident, a powerful tool of commerce and philanthropy, and an inspiration to eager audiences. But this was not always the case.
Raised in a country where women didn’t have a voice, Zahra’s early search for her identity became about standing out as little as possible. Sixteen years ago she moved to Canada and quietly hid away from what she didn’t understand. As a new immigrant and young mother with no understanding of the culture or business world and no higher education on which to build a life in her new country, she had little confidence then in what she had to say.

She found her voice — and a new sense of belonging. Her voice is a voice of inspiration, a voice of entrepreneurship admired across Canada, a voice of understanding, a voice of confidence and a voice that has captivated audiences across the globe.
In this inspiring presentation, Zahra will show you how she channeled frustration into defiance, the mistakes she wishes she hadn’t made, the milestones that propelled her, and how a clear and powerful voice can help anyone get what they want most in life.
