Orly Wahba

Educator, activist, author of Kindness Boomerang: How to Save the World (and Yourself), and CEO of Kindness USA. Orly Wahba is an educator, entrepreneur, author and community activist, passionate about inspiring and motivating people to make the world a kinder place.

Orly began her career in kindness as a middle school educator at the Yeshivah of Flatbush in Brooklyn, New York, teaching the children to embrace unity, build their self-esteem, and use the power they have to influence the world for good. Yearning to make a larger impact with her philanthropic work, Orly founded Life Vest Inside—a non-profit organization with a mission to empower and unite the world with kindness—in 2011.

Through Life Vest Inside, Orly encourages people to embrace the incredible power of giving and recognize that in times of hardship, kindness—like a life vest—keeps the world afloat. LVI gained international acclaim when Orly’s award-winning film Kindness Boomerang went viral, receiving over 30 million views and eventually landing her a spot at TED2013, where she presented a talk on the magic of kindness. Orly and her work have been featured on The Today Show, CBS, NBC, Bloomberg TV among others.
