My fears and insecurities will follow me until I turn to face them.”

So often we are scared of the unknown, but authentic freedom lies in braving the ambiguous. In her talk for CreativeMornings/Berlin, award-winning Australian designer Victoria Ng gives a vulnerable talk about how she confronted her fears. Growing up, she was mocked for her grasp of English and felt shaky with writing, swearing it off forever — only to enroll in a master’s program that required extensive research and writing. By facing her fears, Ng discovered that past experiences do not predetermine future outcomes. How can we learn to embrace uncertainty as a fertile place for becoming? Watch Victoria Ng’s courageous talk and find out.
