Corinna Klawon, is from Hamburg, Germany, where her parents still live. She currently resides in the beautiful Midwest town of Warsaw, Ind., also known as the orthopedic capital of the world. At the age of 16, she took a leap of faith to explore the U.S. as a high school exchange student, and instead of celebrating the A-levels with her high school mates, she decided to start her Marketing and Management degree at Manchester College. What seemed like a dream nine years ago is her reality today, where she pursues a career as a Marketer at one of the largest orthopedic companies in the world.

Corinna’s personal mission is to “light it up...Light up that passion within you and wake up with spirit so you can pursue that salt in the air.” Life begins at the end of your comfort zone because the journey you are on is only building your character. She believes in being an encourager to others and letting them know that they can believe in themselves because sometimes it take another person to remind you that you were born to be AWESOME.

Corinna is a regular contributor at Stilettos On The Glass Ceiling, a website designed to empower and support women in all levels of their careers.
