A very personal challenge in Ms. Zwingli’s life has been her severe illness which broke out when she was a child and has resulted in physical disabilities. Obviously, this is an issue that strongly builds a person’s character. You need to fight harder and be more determined than others to reach your goals. Thus, Ms. Zwingli has developed and successfully applied psychological and physical strategies to move forward and uses her expertise for motivational speaking.
