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 June 2nd, 2021, we will be having a conversation with guest speakers, Jasmine Pel and Evan Fitzgerald on the topic: Looking Ahead.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
Jas is a recent graduate from the University of Washington. She majored in Psychology and ECO (Education, Communities, and Organizations) and minored in Diversity and Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies.
Evan Fitzgerald is a senior at UW graduating with a BA majored in Education, Communities and Organizations. Before Evan attended UW, he received his Associates of Science from North Seattle College and spent a few years working and volunteering. He credits his time away from school to be a big factor as to who he has grown to become.
ABOUT THE TOPIC: Looking Ahead
Jas and Evan will be talking with the group about the transition from high school to college, their experiences in college, and planning for the future as they get ready to graduate this June.
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).
