Two groups of Undergraduate, Graduate Students, Faculty and Staff gathered over brunch in the Z. Smith Reynold’s Library on Sunday, March 31, 2019, to discuss Finding your Inner Strength.

Overview and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

  • Acknowledging that everyone finds strength from different outlets and sources
  • Realizing that we are human and we do have imperfections
  • The importance of finding people with commonalities in our challenges
  • Being more empathetic towards others going through a challenge
  • Evaluate your situation in the present, not the past
  • Find and define these three things: Passion, Focus, Goal
  • Resilience is key*
  • Nobody knows, so it is increasingly more important to communicate, sharing stories and awareness
  • After your experiences, your ability to impact others increases tremendously
  • Sacrifice your time and leave something knowing you have improved it
