As she dragged her bur­dens and se­crets she moved through life car­ry­ing her bur­dens alone, but she slowly learned that these prob­lems are univer­sal across cul­tures and lan­guages. Then she dis­cov­ered that there are tools that helped her over­come her fears. She shares these with you in her book so you too can jour­ney from fear to free­dom.
