I’m back in LA after an amazing FORCE conference and wanted to update you on day two. Day two included my favorite session – Revealing the Story within. This was a writing workshop with Documentary filmmaker Joanna Rudnick (I’ll be posting about her doc shortly) and Boston College Professor Amy Boesky. It was really interesting to see how writing by hand brought a different emotion from me than writing on the computer. Hearing everyone else’s stories was also very emotional for me. A lot of people at the conference didn’t find out they were BRCA positive until they were diagnosed with cancer. It makes me even more thankful and empowered to know about my genetic mutation.
This was an incredible conference and I am so thankful to have been able to attend.
