Blah to Fierce
Smart: The New Swag
In this inspirational message, Shekina challenges students to stop living their lives competing with others and, instead, to let their own light shine. Students leave with a new purpose, a new determination to explore their own unique abilities, talents and skills and discover their own criteria of success.
Reality TV, music, sports, even social media super stars have permeated every part of our students’ culture and “microwave” lifestyles. They praise the glitz, idolize the superficial and often fall for the trappings of glamour and fame. Shekina helps students to open their eyes to see the light they each possess and no longer have to hide from the world. The world is ready. Student leave with a greater sense of purpose and a new resolve to explore their own unique talents and aspirations.
