#18: Abby Stein | Life is a Journey
Boss Ladies
“Cherry-picking our lives is the most beautiful thing we can do.” Abby Stein is an American transgender author, activist, blogger, model, rabbi, and speaker; she is the first openly transgender woman raised in a Hasidic community. In this episode, Abby discusses her extraordinary journey of self-discovery and self-fulfillment within the context of her fundamentalist roots: by taking a 180 degree turn and deconstructing the circle, she was able to take its parts to build a new circle - and move on authentically. Abby highlights the need for society to evolve from just tolerating to actively celebrating identity, the power of community, both the one you’re forced into by circumstance and the one you chose, and finding ways to describe everything in life as beautiful.
