Venezuelan art student Michelle Poler lives in New York City. Fear has played a big role in her life.
She was afraid of dogs because she thought they would bite her. She wouldn’t go to dinner parties because she was too scared to drive at night. She was scared of the germs in porta-potties.
She decided to gain back control, so she wouldn’t be afraid anymore. So, she got a 100-day challenge for herself to face her fears.
It has been 82 days since the challenge began and here are some of the highlights:
A Helicopter Ride
Walking Around in Heels
Posing with Zero Clothes
Painting on a Naked Person
Conquering Roller Coasters
Hugging a Stranger
Entering a Dog Park
Instructing a Zumba Class
Handling a Tarantula
Good job, Michelle! She was able to face her fears and try something new. Everyone could learn a thing or two from her about letting go of our fears.
