015 - Zoe Urban - Life Post-Tragedy and The Power of Community

Episode Summary

Zoe Urban has thee utmost amiable attitude. Back in 2012, she and her three younger siblings lost their parents in Hurricane Sandy and her first instinct, at age 19, was to fight for guardianship of her younger sister and two brothers. Zoe was mid-college at this point and her education had to take a halt in order to put together the pieces of their new family puzzle. Because Zoe's parents were such givers in their community, the four children found the community's response of their tragedy to be so much more immense than anybody would have ever expected.

My takeaway is that the power of community is immeasurable and that we should never underestimate the return of our generosity.

We talk about everything from her story, tragedy and heartbreak while grieving, how to honor your feelings, asking for help, familial and community support during a serious time of need, silver linings and her LOVE STORY! Also, she gave us the recipe for how she makes almond milk ;)
