The Elizabeth Smart Story
The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. At the tender age of 14, just before celebrating her middle school graduation, Elizabeth went to sleep in her family home just as she had always done. Awakened hours later to a knife held roughly against her throat, she was taken from her home and family and held captive for nine long months. In this captivating message, Elizabeth shares her incredible story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her speech not only tells her personal story, but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity, the importance and process of recovery, and not allowing your past to dictate your life's future. Elizabeth knows that there is nothing more important than having hope in a difficult situation. Having lived through an extreme circumstance as a young teenager, Elizabeth gives great insight and hope to all.

Thank you for sharing your experience in such a professional and respectful way, allowing us to better understand the inner perspective of someone who has experienced extreme abuse. Your courage, then and now, and the way in which you live your life is a testament to our ability make choices and find healing despite our circumstances. Thank you.
SHE WAS AMAZING. The gushing from the attendees never ended, there was a standing ovation, and we were all moved to tears. We were incredibly lucky to have her there today to help reinforce the message of our agency.
Elizabeth was a wonderful, captivating speaker. We had the largest crowd we've ever had. I appreciate working with Premiere. You are an excellent customer-oriented business. Thanks for all of your help.
