In 2019, Cyntoia Brown Long’s story captured our collective interest. Fifteen years into a life sentence for killing a man when she was 16-years-old, advocates ranging from Kim Kardashian and Rihanna to lawmakers to the general population advocated for her release. Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam granted Cyntoia clemency calling her situation a “tragic and complex case” involving sex trafficking and mandatory sentencing laws. Cyntoia joins Patrick in the Leadership Lab to discuss what she has learned about leading herself, investing in others, and working to make a difference in the world. Don’t miss this powerful and informative conversation.
