Lauren Brill changed my life. She is such a powerful woman. The amount of admiration I have for her is just amazing. She’s a survivor and a fighter. I hope to one day be like her. I hope to be a warrior. I love the work that she’s done for not only victims, but also the people who have encountered and defeated major obstacles in their life.

Lauren Brill brings energy, passion, and inspiration to her presentations. She has a fighting spirit that is tangible when she offers her story and personal experience to any audience. Lauren is a pro that brings preparation and thoughtfulness that trace back to her Columbia University degree; and a candor and honesty about her that can captivate a wide range of personalities. Oberlin College football and our men got better as students, athletes, and people because of Lauren and her work with The Unsealed.

Lauren came and spoke to our students in grades 6-8 and was fantastic! She held their attention from start to finish as she spoke about overcoming adversity. The stories of real people who overcame such obstacles were amazing for our students to hear and Lauren sharing her own life stories made it even more “real” for the students. It was a great assembly for our students!
