notebook with the word "confidence" highlighted in pink, stickers.

Saturday, Feb. 25
2 – 4 PM ET

virtual event; open to all mentees, mentee alum, and select invites

Do you have a goal so ambitious, you’re afraid to admit it even to yourself, let alone the people closest to you? Don’t worry…we won’t tell anyone. What we will tell you, is that our ability to be honest with ourselves and what we want in life comes from a single source: confidence.

In this workshop, participants will be guided through a series of writing exercises designed to help them assess how they show up in the world as different versions of themselves—aka, their various characters—and focus on developing themselves as one who has the confidence to dream big!

This event is designed for all mentees, mentors, program alum.
