At VSA Colorado Access Gallery
909 Santa Fe, Drive, Denver, CO 80204
The works of two artists in a collaborative project showcasing the illustrations of Andrew Morris and Buna Dahal's recently released book, Leadership Spirit.
Buna, poet, writer, and renowned motivational speaker sought after for her leadership workshops and training all across the globe will be at the Access Gallery signing her new book Leadership Spirit. As a child born blind in Nepal, Buna found herself up against many obstacles, especially the limiting beliefs of others. Choosing not to buy into it, Buna moved to the The United States at a young age, worked as a successful job trainer and coach for the Colorado Center for the Blind, before earning her Master's Degree and starting her own business. Recently, Buna was asked to speak at the United Nations Convention on the importance of spiritual leadership. To learn more go to http://www.bunadahal.com/bio.html
