About the event
Embracing Your Fears: With WE, Not ME Why are we so afraid of fear? What is it about being scared that stifles us from pursuing our biggest dreams and aspirations? What if the reason we are so terrified of taking that initial step is that we believe we are doing it alone? In this meetup, we explore how to embrace our fears as WE, instead of ME. We will identify who can help you step into your own power at any time; who can help you be brave even amongst self-doubt, and who can keep you company while you walk down that fearful path with confidence, purpose, and groundedness. We will call upon our community, past, present, and future, as we finally accept what we have always known but are too afraid to believe...the answers we are looking for in life live in the WE...not the ME.
- Learn how to embody the concept of WE over Me through action
- Practice techniques in real-time that will help reduce your fear regardless of the situation
- Tap into the collective energy of your community, your ancestors, and your descendants

Sara Surani describes herself as an archeologist of people: she loves supporting others in discovering the treasure inside of them and loves when they feel confident enough to display the treasures they find inside of them to the world outside of them. She was born and raised in South Texas, but her family is from Pakistan/India/Bangladesh and her early years were spent at a JCC (even though she is not Jewish), so she became fascinated with cultures, identities, and the spaces in between from an early age. Later on, she graduated from Harvard University, where she studied global health, human suffering, and the things that make people come alive. A lot of different things make Sara come alive, and she seeks experiences that give her goosebumps. Some of them include researching childbirth in Tanzania, domestic violence and girls empowerment in Mauritius, youth empowerment and environmental conservation in the Amazon jungle, tuberculosis and health epidemics in Peru, people's experiences with incarceration in New Mexico, and how to empower teenage girls globally through a project close to her heart: She Is The Universe. Sara also finds a lot of joy in painting on giant canvases, trying to understand sea turtle migration patterns, buying books and not reading them, salsa dancing poorly, and meeting strangers in coffee shops.
Our C7 microlearning series is focused on how to elevate your career through short training modules. The micro-learnings are bite-sized and actionable. Our participants' goal is to "take action" 1-3 immediate actions after an event. This is in a peer setting where participants help hold each other accountable.
