High Wire Walker Lijana Wallenda Talks Conquering Fears and Believing in Yourself
Updated: Jan 16
“I'm not a slave to fear. It won't conquer me.”
Imagine walking 25 stories over Times Square in New York City, with only a wire thinner than the width of your feet supporting you. Lijana Wallenda experienced this last summer, and these were the words she spoke as she crossed a 1,300 foot wire over the city with her brother Nik on live TV; this after surviving a nearly fatal accident just two years prior.
Lijana joined Ten Minute Talks to discuss how she overcame her fears and learned to believe in herself, and shared how you can, too.
