In a fervently delivered presentation, Deborah Emmanuel delivers the crucial message of us needing to attune ourselves to our inner obstacles. She believes that in every person, there is a tipping point that we must acknowledge, reach and overcome, and only after which we can soar and achieve limitlessly. Relating her personal experiences through song and spoken word, Deborah takes us on an interesting route to understand how to harness our potential.

Deborah Emmanuel is a Singaporean writer, poet, actor, and musician. Her poetry has reached international acclaim, appearing in both local and international writers festivals, partnered by her accomplished work in local television and theatre. Besides her talent in the arts, Deborah is also an educator; speaking and engaging with schools, institutions, and prior TEDx events. Using poetry and art as a medium, Deborah brings to light pervasive societal issues, and the need to broaden our perception on such issues.
