Bio for Amber Rae

Called a “Millennial Motivator” by Fortune, Amber Rae is an author, illustrator, entrepreneur, and speaker who encourages emotional wellness and personal growth.

She is the author of the bestselling book, Choose Wonder Over Worry: Move Beyond Fear and Doubt to Unlock Your Full Potential. Blending raw, personal storytelling with visual exercises and actionable aha! moments, Bustle called it, "the one advice book you should read — even if you don't like self-help." Her illustrations turn complex ideas about the human experience into bite-size wisdom, and reach more than 1.2MM people per week on Instagram. Her public art has spread to more than 20 countries, and she has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, NY Mag, TODAY, Inc., SELF, Fast Company, Forbes and Entrepreneur.

She speaks frequently about unlocking our true potential, and has collaborated with organizations such as Kate Spade, TED, Ogilvy and WPP. Previously, Amber started a publishing company with Seth Godin and Amazon, and created marketing campaigns for brands like Apple and Dove.

She lives in Brooklyn, NY——and around the world——with her soon-to-be-husband, Farhad.
