My fellow Trini is in the spotlight today and I'm so excited that she will be giving our Afternoon Keynote "The Beauty of Different". Karen Walrond is a veteran in the blog world and has launched her love for photography into a beautifully successful brand. My words are few when it comes to talking about Karen because she truly inspires me in so many ways that I'm pretty much speechless. Here a little more about her:
Karen Walrond is a former lawyer, former engineer, and a current writer and photographer. Her fine art pieces and projects have been included in exhibits around the country. She was one of the founding contributors to the collaborative website, Shutter Sisters, a photoblog aimed at inspiring and creating community among avid women photographers. She is the author of Through the Gadling Lens, a weekly column on the travel site Gadling.com, with tips and other information on how to take amazing travel shots. She has appeared on both local and national television shows, including an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. And she's the creative mind behind the blog Chookooloonks, a website that helps readers see that their ordinary lives are, in fact, extraordinary; and the author of the upcoming book, "The Beauty of Different," a book that helps readers see that their differences are, in fact, their superpowers.
