Join us for a discussion of Lindsay Rae D'Ottavio's TEDx Talk, Escape the Beauty Propaganda Machine With Strategic Self Talk.
About this event
Our conversation circle is like a book club, but without requiring any prep work! We will watch a short video together and then discuss. Perfect for the mom looking for an intellectual conversation, but not feeling like committing to reading a whole book by a certain date! 😉

About this TEDx Talk:
We all want to know how to stop talking down to ourselves. Despite the obvious barriers - like influencer culture - the real problem is… that we treat ourselves in a way we would never treat the people we care about most. Yet we can all agree it’s true that when we truly respect someone, we would never intentionally minimize them. That’s why, in order to achieve this goal we need to shift our inner dialogue and learn to respect ourselves at the very least as much as we respect our friends. Society tells us that we have to fit into this tiny narrow minded mold of what is considered beautiful.
Lindsay believes confidence in the skin you are in trickles into every aspect and relationship in your life. She gives women permission to feel beautiful exactly as they are. Internationally published and multi-award-winning photographer, author, and Inspirational Speaker, including first place for RangeFinder Magazine's Celebrate the Body and first place at North America's largest speaking competition, the 2021 Speaker Slam on Self Acceptance. Lindsay owns and operates Self Love Experience out of Troy, NY; there she and her glam squad showcase the natural beauty and power in every woman, helping women overcome negative self-esteem and becoming more confident versions of themselves. Lindsay is an active contributor to Women's Business Daily and Co-Author of the Amazon Best Seller and Impact Award winning book, Success Codes: The Secrets to Success You Weren't Taught In High School. She also won a gold medal for W3s Online Social Activism for her work on size inclusivity. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
