Exclusively at the show you can hear from Inspirational Speaker and Adventurist, Angela Maxwell tell her real-life story of traveling 20,000 miles in 6.5 years covering four continents and 13 countries WALKING. Why did she do this? “I just knew that I would regret it if I didn’t at least try. The thought of carrying that regret felt scarier than the unknowns of the walk,” Maxwell said.
Tony Wood, President of Texwood Shows was intrigued by her guts, determination, and adventure when he read her story in an article. He immediately set his own determination to get her at the show. Maxwell will share her story of experiencing people as a participant and serving the community she traveled through as well as giving back to local organizations to empower the lives of women each day of the event. Her mission was one of positive change throughout every step along the journey.
