I Can Do That (and So Can You!)

PRESENTED ON MAY 15, 2019
IN LONDON @ VOL 20

In 'I Can Do That (and so can you!)', Anya Marco Harris, uses her 400 second PechaKucha for great impact. Anya draws on tales from her own life experience to convince the audience that if you have a dream idea floating around in your mind, stop in floating around in the abyss and make it a reality.

As Anya eloquently puts it, if she can achieve being a coffee queen, burlesque dancer, blogger, obtain a MA in cultural cosmology specialising in archeoastronomy and discover how the Neolithic chose to place the stones in Avebury Stone Circle (and that is just her life to date) - then so can YOU!
