Jessica Buchanan on Surviving The Unthinkable and Building Resilience


Jessica Buchanan has one of the most astounding stories of resilience I’ve ever heard. She’s a teacher, author, humanitarian, speaker and survivor who was held in captivity for 93 days by Somali Pirates. She shared her astonishing story in a New York Times bestselling book, Impossible Odds and she was the subject of one of the most widely viewed 60 Minutes segments of all time. She’s also delivered a TEDx Talk: “Change Is Your Proof of Life,” and hosts the popular podcast We Should Talk About That.

Jessica joined host Robert Glazer on the Elevate Podcast to discuss her astonishing story, and how she built the resilience she needed to survive.
