TIPS for Teen is BACK in 2021 with a new format which will allow teens to learn, grow and connect even more than previously! The TIPS session will now be spread out over two weeks, where the first week will entail an interesting conversation with a guest speaker. Then, the following week, participants will continue the discussion among themselves (without a speaker), writing and sharing their TIPS letters as a tool to explore the topic more.
For this week, we will be having an conversation with Donna Austin to discuss about the power of YOUR VOTE, on April 6th, 2021. The follow-up session for this conversation will be on April 13th, 2021.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Donna has had the pleasure of being Anika’s neighbor all her life. Her career has been Nursing. She has also been singing with the Seattle Peace Chorus since 2001.
ABOUT THE TOPIC: The Power of Your Vote!
Last Fall, Donna and her group put on a concert called Get Out the Vote in the effort of informing and encouraging people to vote. Donna was the Executive Editor to the corresponding Get out the Vote Newsletter they created. She worked with Common Power, a local organization, to help get Biden and the 2 senators in Georgia elected. Though she is not an expert and has a lot to learn also, Donna has always believed in the right to vote and feels it's even more important in our current climate.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:
Our facilitator for TIPS for Teens is Anika Tara Rao. Anika is currently in 10th grade. She enjoys singing, cooking, travelling and laughing with friends and family. 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).
