This talk delves into the intimate journey of transformation, resilience, and self-discovery. Attorney Juanita Ingram made a bold decision to leave her flourishing career as a corporate attorney and relocate across the world to London with her husband and two young children. What followed was a profound exploration of identity, purpose, and navigating change as a trailing spouse—a term she initially resisted but learned to redefine on her own terms.
