In this conversation, you will hear Emilia explain Sisu, which I describe as my reserve tank of motivation and energy in those moments when I’m up against something. Sisu exists in the presence of some sort of adversity. As humans, we tend to shy away from things that are difficult, but Sisu allows us to exceed ourselves.
