Episode 14 – Alexandra Galviz (Being Vulnerable and Authentic)

AlexAlexandra (Alex) Galviz is making her mark on the LinkedIn Community by following a path that is all but ignored in the corporate world.  She is being authentic.  In doing so, she allows herself to be vulnerable.  And even more, she is helping others do the same thing.

Alexandra’s story is not only inspiring to those in the corporate world.  It is helping young people as well.  Pushing her fears and doubts aside, she set her eyes on the prize and won it, only to find herself out of place and in crisis.  She packed her bags and set out to be – who we on LinkedIn know her as – Authentic Alex.

And she is getting noticed for her efforts.  In 2017, Alexandra was named one of The Top Influencers in the UK by LinkedIn.

Alexandra is a humble, gentle soul who is showing the world that you can be exactly who you are meant to be and find success.

 

Episode 12 – Grace (Child Abuse and Incest…Now a Victor)

After years of abuse at the hands of her father, Grace struggled with homelessness, self-worth, and forgiveness before she was empowered to be the woman she was meant to be. She is an inspiration to so many with her cheerfulness and positive outlook.

Unless you personally experience something, it is very difficult to fundamentally understand it.  When I heard domestic violence referred to as an act of terrorism, it hit home.  I had never had the words to put to what I went through and the damage it ultimately caused to me; my person, my well-being, my emotional state, and my relationships.  The person I had once been had been destroyed.

Kevin is a seasoned missionary having assisted ministries in over 30 countries, including Pichilemu, Chile where he met his wife Claudia. During his travels throughout Latin America Kevin came in contact with various anti-trafficking ministries through which God captured both Claudia and his hearts with the desperate need of those suffering as modern slaves.
