Awakening The Hero Inside
An invisible illness stripped Silvia of her career, social circles and independence, challenging her to rebuild her best life possible. Silvia intimately shares how she overcame her most crushing decade, after enduring twenty-five years of gaslighting and misdiagnoses. By practicing five insightful and universal lifelines to conquer life's tragedies, she motivates and inspires her audience to awaken the hero inside. Silvia also shares taboo truths of living inside the female body in a patriarchal society, a history of reproductive healthcare to our current reality, from the patient's experience, and an unfiltered Q&A.
All programs are based on personal experience and extensive research.

Writer, activist, and stage 4 endometriosis and infertility survivor Silvia Young wrote a play based on her experiences, and let us tell you, it's POWERFUL. Endometriosis, first recognized during Socrates, affects 1in10 girls and women. GASLIT sheds light on social injustice and challenges the audience to champion policy to end the systemic gender abuses. Proud to be working with Silvia to bring GASLIT to our campus chapters."
