|Did anyone else have to dig out their cars with their bare hands & a mini snow brush? It was that kind of month! This week I attended a 2-day training called Beyond Trauma with Stephanie Covington at the Women’s Consortium in Hamen. I had the amazing honor of presenting at the Boys & Girls Club on Career Success & Asking for Help; Greens Farms Academy’s on Body Image & Eating Disorders.
Read my post on My Recipe for Confidence, inspired by the students I’ve been working with. I’m also leading a social media campaign called Embrace Yourselfie to help people who are learning to love & accept their bodies. Please be in touch if you’re interested in joining us (nearly 200 strong!)
I’ve enthusiastically accepted an internship at the CT Nonprofit Association to learn more about policy and nonprofit management. Last but not least, I’ve received a Dean Merit Scholarship to Smith School of Social Work. Thank you to all my mentors and friends who helped me navigate difficult some decisions these past few weeks and supported me through the application process. As always, please let me know if I can ever be a resource for you and your friends/family.
