Amber Scorah on The Thought Project - Episode 61

Amber Scorah shares a remarkable journey of leaving the Jehovah's Witness faith while on mission in China. Leaving her faith as a third generation Jehovah Witness was fraught with a multitude of challenges. To begin, by severing her ties to the church, by default she ended her marriage too. Ironically, being in China gave Scorah the emotional space and physical distance to be able to carve out a path to a remarkable new life. Enchanted with New York City, Scorah seeks a new beginning where she sustains a tragedy that would stagger the strongest among us. She is studying psychology of mind control and group dynamics at Hunter College. She is a Thomas Smith Academic Fellow.
