What an absolute honor to lead a full day wellness retreat @suffieldacademy last Thursday! I would like to thank Suffield's Director of Diversity, Elizabeth Warren, for inviting me and envisioning such an amazing and historic event! Grateful for everyone’s hospitality and kindness! The girls and I discussed how to:
- find and create school-life balance -feel more empowered when confronting everyday stress and academic challenges
-deal with the challenges of microaggressions, experiences with racial tokenism, and implicit bias in independent schools
-reflect on their past and present mindfully and visualize and design a roadmap outlining the future they want.
Such an honor providing students with tools to design a life centered on holistic wellness, play, self-efficacy, equity, community building, and social justice. Lookout for upcoming posts on this event! It was AMAZING!
