TIPS for Teen is BACK in 2021 with a new format that 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 15th, 2021, we welcome our very first teen guest speaker! Meron Weldemariam will be talking with the group about what's going on in Ethiopia right now.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Meron Weldemariam is currently a sophomore who is passionate about social issues.
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
Meron will be talking with the group about what’s going on in Ethiopia, specifically the Tigray genocide. Make sure to tune in to be informed on ways you can help.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:
Our facilitator for TIPS for Teens is Anika Tara Rao. Anika is currently in 10th grade. She enjoys singing, cooking, traveling, 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).
