Mikaela Hunt

Mikaela Hunt – Find Your Story

Change is inevitable and sometimes unexpected. We can either drive ourselves toward it or be swept up in a crashing wave. While change represents fear and hesitation for many people, it can lead to incredible opportunity. You can be the author of your own story by embracing change and vulnerability.

marschhausen_john

John Marschhausen – Personalizing Learning for Every Student

Personalization… discovering one’s drive.  Personalization… evolving on a life-long journey of discovery.  Personalization… challenging self to exceed internal expectations.  Personalization… digging deeper, finding new capacity, overcoming self to redefine success.  Personalization… vanquishing fear, conquering hesitation, and overcoming failures.

TJ George

T.J. George – Driven by Passion and Vulnerability

When you decide to be vulnerable and truly tell your story, the world seems to open up and cosmic events occur to assist you in telling that story in the most authentic way. TJ shares of how he has used a songwriting life each day with passion at the forefront.

Gwen HZayne H

Gwendolyn and Zayne Harshaw – The Unexpected Gift

At 4 years old Zayne was diagnosed with autism.  Gwen will share how they found strength through Zayne’s gifts instead of focusing on his weaknesses.  Today, Zayne is a member of the band Blue Spectrum which has 2 other autistic members.  He taught himself to play the guitar. Music has really transformed him from a painfully shy boy to an extremely confident musician.

Jeff Butler

Jeffery Butler – How Smartphones Change The Way You Think

Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to put down your phone? There are hidden psychological effects that smartphones are having on our brains. Studies show that smartphone users are developing serious problems, like real addictions, and losing the ability to focus. Mobile technology isn’t going anywhere, so we must become aware of these effects so we can better use technology- instead of letting it use us. 

Mike McDonough

Mike McDonough – Opportunities of Adversity

Often times people tend to shy away from adversity, but unfortunately adversity is something we all will face at one point or another in all aspects of our lives (work, family, social, health). Mike shares the adversities which ultimately led to an amputation of his leg. But instead of letting circumstances define him, he has used them as motivation to meet his challenges and drive through adversities.

Joe Ross

Joe Ross – Motivation by Connotation

The words we surround ourselves with are incredibly important. Motivation by Connotation is the idea that we could take words that traditionally have negative meanings and use them as a source of encouragement by redefining their meanings.

Yuricich Jillian Headshot

Jillian Yuricich – Dreaming of Mars

Jillian will discuss how passion for a dream can provide all the drive that you need in life. Not only is passion something that can encourage self-motivation, but it can inspire others to be more driven in their own lives. Jillian’s source of inspiration comes from the love of space exploration. She will talk about how how her dreams came to be, what she has done to achieve them, and how drive is something that she has thrived on for the 18 years that she has wanted to be an astronaut.

Amraha Nadeem

Amraha Nadeem – United We Stand

By accepting our differences, and working together, we can accomplish more than we ever imagined. We must break the chains of ignorance in society, and build bridges to understand each other. Although we may read different holy books, or call God by different names, inside each and every one of us is one heart that can love. Through love and understanding, we can enhance not only our own individual growth, but also humanity.

Kunal Verma

Poet Kunal Verma –  Drive + Passion = Happiness

How do you become a more driven person? What are the characteristics that make one person more driven than another? How do we as people find the things in life that make us driven and help us to become happier people?  It starts with the vulnerability to say yes to something and be open to it, and let it drive you forward into happiness.
