Following on from the success of last year’s Student Salon, we have decided to bring it back again!

We all have moments when we lose track of our identity. We forget about our goals, disconnect from our roots, send our priorities into disarray; experiences tumble out of our hands and out of control, and we learn nothing from them.

This salon zooms in on personal stories and their interaction with these external experiences. Our speakers’ stories are those of resilience, purpose, and connection, ones that highlight the simultaneous universality and singularity of the lessons life teaches us. We have control over our experiences, and we can hold our identity back in focus.
