Abstract :

Oral Synopsis: I am Keshena Patterson and I��?ve been through the emotional journey of PCOS(polycystic ovarian syndrome). Living trapped in a body with your hormones out of whack is an experience that I would never wish on anybody, but it taught me something important too: To keep my head up, to stay positive, and to stay spiritual as I surpass my goals and turned my life around more than I ever thought could be possible. My talk will consist of when I was diagnosed, all of the symptoms I faced and still do. The many dark years I experienced letting the condition take over my life. I will also speak about when I decided to turn it around, take better care of myself, learn self awareness and change the things I could. The decisions I made changed my life a great deal and I will encourage the audience to do the same. I will also do a crowd participation activity that will allow everyone to focus on something about themselves they enjoy and keep it at the center of their day to help them stay focused and positive!
