People of Purpose

Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

Apr 28, 2018

Silvia’s biggest passion is showing people how their emotional pain, their challenges and struggles contribute to their growth. As a young girl, she was growing up in a destructive environment which carried violence, drugs and alcohol abuse in different forms. After she completed her bachelor's degree, she knew that she needed some massive change, something crazy and life transforming. At the age of 22 she grabbed her suitcase and moved to the U.S. with $500 in her pocket and a dream in her heart. She was obsessed with changing her life and helping her family in her country. Even when she struggled at the beginning and was far away from what we call the "American dream", she knew that life isn't only black and white and if she can fix her mindset and see the world differently, she can change her life. She started to educate herself, she read a lot and she studied her own behavior. One question which triggered her mind more than anything was "How can we handle pain and struggle better and thrive in life in spite of challenges?" 
About 2 and a half years ago, she launched her blog "Courage Within You" where she was sharing my stories, experience and knowledge with others. She knew that she found a lot of support in reading and learning from different self-development giants so she decided to do the same. After 2 years of blogging, she self-published her first book Courage Within You and now is in the process of building her own coaching business.
