Meridith Alexander and her daughter Schuyler have always shared one mission: Positively impact the world and passionately help people find their purpose. Schuyler was on her way to graduating from Yale, an avid traveler, and a passion for social enterprise. Meridith had a thriving business of her own.
On February 19th, 2016 the world in which they knew it would never be the same.
While vacationing in Colombia on her way back to Peru, Schuyler was crushed by a boulder that broke loose during their stop at a swimming hole while white-water rafting in Colombia. Shortly after, Meridith received the call no mother wants to get, essentially “Get here as fast as you can, so you can say good-bye.”
Over the past three years, Schuyler and Meridith have shared their journey through feelings of despair, hope, belief, expectation, and knowing that although they could not change WHAT happened, they can change HOW they viewed what happened in order to help positively impact others and encourage them to passionately find their purpose.
Meridith walks me through how she redefined tragedy in order to see the good in every situation by using GRIT.
G - Greatness - Finding your inner greatness.
