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 the session on May 4th, 2021, we will be having a conversation with guest speaker, Naveen Valluri on "Finding grounding amidst change".
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Naveen Valluri is a Principal Product Manager/Architect with the Health and AI team in Microsoft, and a dad to Aadit and Arnav, 15 and 11. A dream job at Microsoft brought Naveen to the Pacific Northwest 18 years ago and Seattle has been his home ever since.
ABOUT THE TOPIC: Finding Grounding Amidst Change
Microsoft has changed considerably in the past decade, and these changes have provided Naveen an opportunity to embrace change and the possibilities that come from it. In this TIPS session, Naveen will chat with the group about how he has found grounding and learnt more about himself amidst all the changes surrounding him.
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).
