On April 6th of 2015 I started my project 100 Days Without Fear. At around day 40 it was discovered by the media, giving me the chance to appear on CBS, CNN, HuffPost LIVE, Buzzfeed and many others in the US and abroad. It also led me to speak at TEDx as my 100th fear, which marked the beginning of my speaking career. For more videos subscribe to my Youtube Channel and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat: dayswofear :) ALSO! Don't forget to be part of the Fearless Movement and follow Hello Fears for stories of courage from everyday people like you and me! And if you have a story you'd like to share, fill out this form!

"What a great initiative! There must be so many people out there who face the same fears and challenges as you do, and I am definitely one of them. Fears have kept me from living life to the fullest, so instead of feeling sorry for the things I missed out, I decided to take things into my own hands and make some changes. Sending an email to a complete stranger is definitely one of the things I would never have done." –Evy, Belgium

"I read an article about 100 Days Without Fear on Cosmopolitan.com, and I was immediately inspired. I began writing my own list of fears. I have 55 written down so far but I keep thinking of more. It is empowering. These are fears that hold me back from experiencing life to the fullest- which I think is basically the point of life. I am in love with life, but my anxiety and fear of everything often hold me back." –Talia
"Oh my goodness, I just had to email and tell you how adorable you are! I just came across your site and project today and got hooked immediately from the first video! Next thing I know it's 2 am and I'm still watching your videos, haha. But seriously, what you're doing is so awesome and much kudos to you; you are brave!" –Anokina
