Tania Luna Keynotes - Tania Luna is the CEO of Surprise Industries, who gives inspiring speeches on her personal story as...
Luna talks about coming to America and staying in a homeless shelter with her family. However, she didn’t know it was a homeless shelter, she thought it was a hotel. Compared to the living conditions she had been exposed to while living in Chernobyl, she felt lucky to be there. She talks about how finding a penny on the ground made her feel rich. Luna reveals that her husband grew up homeless as well, but had a small collection of toys and comics that kept him happily occupied no matter how hungry he got or how bleak his situation was.
Growing up with almost nothing has a way of making one appreciate what they have. Luna stresses the importance of finding value in one’s surroundings or possessions, even if they don’t have a lot.
