"I finally decided to go back to school...I talked myself out of being able to just make that leap of faith and go for my dreams. So it was during that time that I finally overcame myself and got out of my own way and decided to let my faith be bigger than my fears."
This episode of Strength in the Midst of Change features Elizabeth Storey, 2020 CEW+ Scholar receiving the Lucile B. Conger Alumnae Group Scholarship, and undergraduate student in Sociology with Social Work Sub Major. Elizabeth shares her insights about her journey through overcoming her fears in order to go after her educational dreams. She also explains how vital connection is to our well-being and how self-care is actually a very unselfish act.
Resiliency is best demonstrated in times of challenges.
