Born and raised in South Dakota, Holly Hoffman was the last woman standing on Season 21 of the CBS hit reality show Survivor Nicaragua. Through that experience, and others throughout her life, Holly has been inspired to share her message of positivity, determination and confidence with business leaders, teachers, and students across the nation. 

Never Give Up: The Survivor Way 
"As opportunities arise, we often find ourselves holding back because of fear or uncertainty. When we face our fears, we discover our true survivor skills. I took an opportunity that challenged me on many levels. As I share my story of being on the CBS reality show Survivor, I explain how I learned firsthand that our power and potential lie within our interpretation of the situation and our ability to turn adversity into strength. I explain how using Faith, Attitude, Determination, Confidence, Desire and Perseverance can change our lives forever." -- Holly Hoffman
