Why 'See Stacy Speak'?
Have you ever felt:
Hopeless? Powerless? Less than? Insignificant? Invisible?
Do you believe you have an inner badass? Do you believe you are significant and important? Have you found your VOICE?
Stacy Bernal is an Ambassador of Badassery. She believes we all have greatness within, whether we realize it or not. She believes it takes courage to own our stories, even the ugly bits we want to keep hidden away. Stacy believes shame can lead to strength, vulnerability is a virtue, and our weaknesses can build us into warriors.
As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Stacy learned that it was something not to be talked about. Silently, she carried an immeasurable amount of shame for most of her life. At 17, she endured the heartbreak of giving a son up for adoption. By 30, she had failed marriages, failed careers, and was lost. She learned her son was autistic, and she struggled as a single mom to take care of him. In 2009, she ran her first marathon and found herself at the finish line.
Now an eight-time marathoner, ultra-marathoner, and triathlete, Stacy sees the world through eyes of a conqueror. She climbed out of Rock Bottom and made it to the surface, but she didn't stop there and she continues to climb mountains (both figuratively and literally). And she wants to bring people with her.
Stacy was quiet about her abuse, while trauma gnawed at her from the inside out. Today, she shares ways people can embrace the ugliness of shame and trauma, and recreate it (and ourselves) into something strong, beautiful, resilient, and powerful. She learned to break the cycle of failure and has accomplished feats from graduating college at thirty-six to becoming an award-winning sales rep to building her own entrepreneurial empire.
See. Stacy. Speak.
She found her voice. Now let her help you find YOURS.
