I embrace me and that’s why I’m free: Creating healthy mindsets with teens and emerging adults
Leaders are set apart from others for their unique styles of leading and ability to connect through authenticity and relationship building. Student leaders today are challenged with the influence of social media, body dissatisfaction and comparison, which affects the way in which we see ourselves, our level of confidence in our abilities to lead in our communities and tapping into the unique talents that makes us different. As a Residential Hall Director at the University of New Hampshire, Trevon has worked with students closely through their personal and professional development. A common theme noticed is that most adolescents and emerging adults struggled with the byproducts of social media influence, body dissatisfaction and comparison to others.
Finding a way to combat these road blocks our student leaders face, Trevon’s method of self-embracement and starting within has helped thousands of teens, young adults and adults excel in their area of interest. Get a chance to hear Trevon’s personal story of how he navigated an identity crisis and climbed out of the pit of comparison changing his thought process and perspective towards these challenges.
