10:30-11:15 | Shedding the Façade and Writing Our Vulnerable Truth
In a world where judgment is rapid fire, the survival instinct we're born with is to not appear vulnerable. Join bloggers who have shed the façade. Rather than private struggles, and only working through life's questions within an inner circle, they have created strong, supportive communities. By bringing their truth -- sharing 100 percent of themselves, through working out depression histories, struggles with finding a community, with deciding what is right and what is wrong, by taking on less than popular stances, these bloggers have found strength where most expect vulnerability. We each hunger for connection, and connection comes from sharing our honest, vulnerable selves.

Panelists: Alexandra Rosas and Erin Margolin
