Today's young people face often overwhelming challenges and decisions as they strive to discover their passion and purpose and proceed in a direction with confidence. How does one craft a meaningful life? Dream Big. Persevere. Create Something. Do Good. Serve others. Jen shares her story of graduating valedictorian of her high school class, earning degrees in Engineering and Art from Swarthmore College, working as a structural engineer in New York City, and then transitioning to life in business for herself as a professional performer. And eventually crafting her love of juggling into a tool to inspire others through her work as a non-profit director, speaker and trainer, roles in which she found more meaning, creative satisfaction, and fulfilling connection to others. She encourages and inspires young audiences to: • Follow your dreams and create the life you imagine. • View life as a juggling act, and know that figuring out how the pieces fit together is a challenge. • Be patient with yourself. It takes time to find your own pattern and pathway. • Learn from the "drops" or mistakes, pick up the balls, and keep going on your journey. • Figure out what you’re passionate about, work hard, and take pride in your accomplishments. • Be the biggest, most amazing version of yourself. • Support and encourage your classmates and friends. Make a difference in the lives of others by starting with those closest to you. TEDx speaker, engineer and non-profit director Jen Slaw presents a new paradigm for how to balance it all by juggling profession, passion, and purpose.
