The Life Story Of A College Dropout-College Dropout's Meet-Up
Wondering what this event is about? Well, don't burn your calories in mere curiosity! Here's everything you need to know to register asap:
A. It's going to be a story-telling gig where (hopefully) college/university students with versatile academic and professional backgrounds and diverse set ofexperiences will narrate their #lifestories beginning from their time at college (like how they felt when they were struggling academically and why) uptil what's up now! The idea is to normalize academic struggles and do away with the tradition of associating academic success with intelligence and determination (how many of you worked hard academically only to be taken seriously by your parents and peers?)
B. The story-telling session with be followed by a panel discussion where college/university teachers as well as counsellors and psychologists will talk about the impact that over-emphasizing academic success has on student performance, learning and mental health and how to break this association between academic performance/success and perceptions about self-worth! The idea is once again to break labels and fight stereotypes around academic success and failure, and success and failure in general!
C. Ultimately, we will ask the audience why is success important to them at all and if they feel that we, as a culture, attach too much importance to 'success' and being 'successful' as opposed to let's say being happy or content with what we got!
So in short, this is pretty much for everyone right?! Because we all believe in#nolabelsforpeople! No matter what!
Do join us! Hit 'going'! You could also sign up if you wish to join us as a speaker/panelist or co-organizer!
