Are your friends really your friends? Do the people who say they care/love you, really care/love you? If you had to think twice about these 2 questions then this is the workshop for you? We will provide strategies to identify “people” you try to prevent you from becoming THE BEST YOU! Get ready to embark on a journey and unlock the power inside of you. You will learn about how to attract positive people in your social friend group, prevent yourself from becoming the target of a bully and activate your special gift/talents!

From Chaos to Clarity: 5 Ways to Stay EmPOWERed When You Feel Life Sucks | 3:15 – 4:00 Room 1
With the growth of technology and social media consumption, youth are continuously experiencing information overload. The external messaging has a huge impact on how they form their identities. In trying to match up to the presumed standards, the information is often internalized, which can lead to feelings of self-doubt, anxiety and sadness. Couple that with peer pressure, and many other social life factors, it may feel very overwhelming to find the positivity and courage to move forward. While it may seem that all hope is lost, it is not! During this session, Eva will share 5 Ways To Stay Empowered in order to effectively build confidence and identify the Power and Purpose Factor in you!
Presented by Eva Toby
