Please RSVP to get the Zoom meeting link emailed to you.
UHeights is excited to bring you a wonderful new program for teens, with which we hope to create a space for them to connect with themselves as well as each other.
Our facilitator for this program, TIPS for Teens is Anika Tara Rao. Anika will be starting 10th grade this Fall. She enjoys singing, dancing, cooking and hanging out with friends. Anika was inspired by her mom Dr. Anu Taranath to create safe spaces for talking about sometimes uncomfortable topics. She loves leadership and is very excited and thankful to be able to connect with you all!
TIPS is a book written by Dr. Anu's UW students during their study abroad program in India, encouraging us to see ourselves and our surroundings anew via thought-provoking letters to Things, Ideas, People and Self (TIPS).
Each week, Anika will introduce you to new guest speakers, who will share their insights with you and answer any questions you might have. You will spend some time writing letters using the TIPS model, and then share what you've written with the group.
The guest speaker for the 12/1 session is Neli Jasuja. Neli is a Program Manager at Young Women Empowered (Y-WE), based in Seattle, WA, and focused on Food and Land Justice youth programming at Marra Farm in South Park. She first connected with Y-WE as a mentor with the Nature Connections program and fell in love with the powerful intergenerational community of diverse womxn supporting each other in the outdoors. During this time, she served as an AmeriCorps term with Solid Ground teaching nutrition, cooking, and gardening with elementary school students experiencing food insecurity. Before this, Neli worked in tech marketing for 3 years after attending Stanford University, where she studied the psychological and sociological relationship between humans and technology.
Neli is passionate about exploring organic cycles of life as a framework to sustainably participate in our environment and communities and connect to our selves. She will be talking with the group about "Life Lessons in the Garden".
