The Importance of Outreach
Posted by AwesomeinAction
I am beaming happy, elated, and completely in awe of the opportunities that I have been given in the last year. Who else has been so lucky as to be invited to speak at schools, social organizations, and programs throughout the Midwest to do what they enjoy most?
It does not matter to me whether I sell 1 book, or 100 books in a month; what really matters to my heart and soul is that I have done what I am truly passionate about; teach. I know that I have brought at least a bit knowledge to those who have heard me present. I know that I can continue to raise awareness about individuals with special needs wherever I go.
It makes me feel so grateful that I have had a chance to speak at big venues such as TEDxFront Range and Lululemon; but also, that I have had so many individual interactions with children and adults alike within my community. I feel my confidence grow with each conversation I have that ends with a smiling person walking away from me.
I have the power to change the world; and I am doing it, one presentation, one person at a time!
