Event Description:

Overcoming Adversity: My Personal Journey from Paralysis to Purpose

Emeka Nnaka shares his personal story of how he overcame adversity and found purpose after being paralyzed from the chest down. He talks about how he lifted himself out of a dark place and became an inspiration to many.

Emeka is uniquely qualified to present life, its challenges, and its opportunities from the perspective of someone who found strength through tremendous adversity. He has addressed audiences across the Midwest U.S. including schools, professional groups, and corporate events. Emeka has been featured on NPR's "All Things Considered," where he discussed the Americans with Disabilities Act on its 25th anniversary for a national audience. His story has also been featured in other national publications such as The Mighty, The Washington Post, TED Talks, and the Onion, an op-ed of Time magazine. As a speaker, coach, and advocate, Emeka inspires others to find hope, take action in their lives, and live beyond the labels of their circumstances.

Transformation U is an inspiring luncheon that provides members an afternoon of camaraderie and great food. Held annually in the spring, this event hosts a new captivating guest speaker each year who shares his or her success (and failure) stories with our members and inspires them to make a positive change in their own lives. Transform your mind, transform your spirit, transform you.
