What comes to your mind when you hear the words “Sunstone Symposium?” It has been 5-6 years that I have been attending Sunstone, and I absolutely love it. At this year’s conference I had the opportunity to interview about 34 individuals, in order to provide a demonstration of some of the amazing people that were also attending the conference.

Thank you so much for listening.
