Being Scared: Using Fear as a Driver, Not an Inhibitor

Online • August 16, 2016

Hear Julia Landauer, professional racecar driver, motivational speaker, and STEM education advocate, talk about the different ways that fear presents itself in life, how she deals with it in various circumstances, and how we can use ours to push forward.

Tue, Aug 16, 2016 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Whether you’re starting a new job, negotiating a raise, or driving at 140 MPH within inches of a wall, everyone experiences fear. Fear is an innate part of life and has been a driver in human survival. Because of its diverse effects on the body, fear can help motivate, or it can inhibit, your progress. Julia Landauer, professional racecar driver, motivational speaker, and STEM education advocate, has learned the different ways that fear presents itself in life, how she can deal with it in various circumstances, and how she uses it to push her forward.

In this Jam Session, Julia will discuss:

  • The biological effects fear has, and how to tackle them
  • The different examples of fear and various reactions people can take
  • The fear (and obstacles) that some women face in male-dominated fields

Julia Landauer is a two-time champion racecar driver from New York City, who made history as the youngest and first female driving champion from the Skip Barber Racing Series at the age of 14. She graduated from Stanford University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Science, Technology, and Society, where she studied how modern technology can be applied to racing. As she climbs the NASCAR ladder, Julia is using her racing platform to continue advocating for STEM education, women’s empowerment, and for following your dreams despite the hurdles.
