Mount Vernon High School alumna, Myiesha Taylor, will join us on Tuesday, February 8th, to discuss her newly released book, Don’t Settle, Fear Less: An Interactive Guide to Conquering Fear and Living Authentically. Through personal stories, vibrant illustrations, and reflective journal prompts, this book teaches its readers to be fearless, which is not the absence of fear but the courage to proceed even in the presence of fear. The author will facilitate four 75-minute workshops that will include powerful conversations and reflections, interactive activities on self-esteem, mental health, overcoming fear, and other obstacles to achieving your purpose, and even more topics that are relevant to the lives of adolescents.

This internship is open to grade 10-12 scholars. THE IMPORTANCE OF AN INTERNSHIP The importance of an internship cannot be over emphasized.
