One White Face

Hilary Corna

When Hilary Corna was twenty-two years old, she bought a one-way ticket to Singapore to pursue a pipe dream of launching a career in Asia. Successfully landing a job with Toyota in Singapore as Senior Executive Officer, she served the company for three years conducting Kaizen throughout dealerships in numerous Asian countries. One White Face is an account of her time abroad, which is now being adapted into a screenplay. It has been called the “GenY version of Eat, Pray, Love” and is used in numerous colleges.

Hilary is the Founder of the #DareYourself Campaign and Burial Blessings, Co-Founder of Okaeri Nippon, and a TEDx speaker. Her organization is partnered with the Holstee Manifesto, and Hilary also is a spokesperson for Toyota USA and “I’mFirst!”  A nationally recognized speaker, Hilary has been featured on NBC, The New York Times and ForbesWoman, as well as in Pearson’s Business Communication textbook. Over the last five years, she has spoken to over 30,000 students at more than 100 colleges, universities, and high schools across the nation.
