From adversity to insight to changing the world. That’s the path that 24-year-old Jonathan Kathrein has taken since the horrifying day on August 26, 1998 when he was attacked by a shark at northern California’s Stinson Beach.
He’s transformed his ordeal into a metaphor for leadership and conflict resolution and is devoting his life to working with young people through his organization called Future Leaders for Peace.
The Marin Independent Journal just wrote about him, and his new children’s book called, Don’t Fear the Shark is available on Amazon now.
Watch this fascinating interview with Jonathan, and I think you’ll be as impressed as I am with his clarity and wisdom.
Oh, and by the way…he’s an old friend of my son, Saul, who, along with all their other buds, used to visit Jonathan when he was recovering at home.
As you can imagine, he was the talk of the town back then.
Looks like he still is–and for very, very good reason.
