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 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.
