I attended and photographed another Ohlone Psychology Speaker Series Event featuring Mary Johnson. Mary Johnson is the author of An Unquenchable Thirst. It is a memoir of her times spent as a nun in The Missionaries of Charity, she worked closely under Mother Teresa for nearly 20 years. She shared with us her story as a Sister of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and explained commitment mechanisms. She left the sisters in 1997 and went on to study English and Creative Writing. She also co-founded the A Room of Her Own Foundation. Mary Johnson's work has been featured in many publications and public displays ranging from O the Oprah Magazine,The Washington Post, The Rosie Show, and many others.
Commencing the talk is club president, Jessica Oak. Followed by faculty advisor, Sheldon Helms. He also serves as a board director for Stanford Sleepwell Society, Bay Area Skeptics and SkeptiCal Science Conference. Mary also read an excerpt from her memoir. After the talk, she stayed for a book signing. Thank you Mary, for sharing your story with all of us! To purchase her book, click here.
