Collins Tuohy shares a famously close bond with her adopted brother Michael Oher. As chronicled in blockbuster movie "The Blind Side", it began when she first met Michael in the hallways of Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis, Tennessee. Collins is currently on the Board of the The Making it Happen Foundation, dedicated to changing children’s lives through hope, love, and opportunity. She also contributed to the New York Times best-seller In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving. At the podium, Collins takes audiences through her journey with Michael from fellow student to close friend, confidant, and ultimately, adoptive sister. The Tuohy family’s life, as chronicled in Michael Lewis’ New York Times number one best-seller The Blind Side, went on to become a record-breaking Hollywood blockbuster that earned more than $300 million at the box office and became the number-one opening weekend for a sports film in history.
