Ok, this was a powerful one. This is an interview with #MSD Teacher Chelsea Briggs and #MSD Students Madison McEvoy and Jordan Tamares. I am so thankful to them for participating and supporting the summit. They are all so strong and inspiring.
“I think as long as we all work together, & #communicate nicely and figure out how we can work on things together, then the world will be a better place. We don’t have to agree on everything, we can agree to disagree, and still work on things.”-Madison
“We need to stop being on our own agendas and start listening to each other… It has to come to a #commonground, there’s always a common ground.”-Chelsea
“My number 1 answer to making the world a better place is spreading #awareness.” – Jordan
“I definitely #meditate a lot and it helps because it clears your mind and you’re not focused on everything going on in the world because it will drive you crazy.”-Madison
“At #MSD we have a #yoga program. It’s a PE Requirement. Kids love it. They take it & feel calm, especially this year, they’ve needed it more than ever. They take the time to calm students down, make them feel included w/ their peers.”- Chelsea
“I’m a fan of #yoga so I do that a lot and that helps a lot by just calming yourself and getting into that mindset of just being comfortable.”- Jordan
