Unleash the power of your inner drag queen
A female drag queen, Jackie Huba delivers a talk that showcases the need to embrace the transformative abilities of your flexible personas. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.
Through in depth interviews and real life experiences, author Jackie Huba has found that the process that drag queens use to transform into bold female personas for the stage also works to shape the personas we “perform” every day.
Jackie has spent most of her career challenging people to express the best in themselves and most recently, she has helped women build confidence, take risks, and live more fearlessly by harnessing the transformative art of drag. Feeling creatively stifled in her own life, Jackie discovered this power first hand by creating her own female drag character and performing on stage.
Jackie is a Forbes.com contributor, and her work has frequently been featured in the media, such as the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and Advertising Age. She is an 11-year veteran of IBM, a Penn State University graduate, a Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic, and a karaoke champion. She currently resides in Austin, Texas.
