Moxie: One Woman’s Version | Kelly Ellis | TEDxUWGreenBay

While bouncing back from a few hard knocks, Kelly Ellis realized that the power to have a great life had been with her all along. In her talk, Ellis defines moxie as the intersection of grit, gumption and self-awareness and shares a real life example of what happens when she stopped listening to others and lived her own authentic life. She encourages the audience to trust in their own instincts, express themselves and perhaps even go back to the person they were before life gave them a little too much advice about who to be when they grew up. Kelly Ellis is the Founder & Fearless Leader of the Greater Green Bay STEM Network, an organization created in 2013 to connect STEM education resources in the region. She is passionate about working closely with community nonprofits. Ellis graduated with a Business Administration degree (emphasis in Marketing) and high honors from UW-Green Bay in 2008. She minored in Studio Arts. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
