Keynote: Fight the Stereotype
No one knows more about being judged or labeled than a teenager. Sit in on any cafeteria and you’ll hear students sizing each other up, but more importantly, you’ll see the behavior cycles that are created in this social jungle.
In this Assembly program, Erica teaches students how to overcome stereotypes to succeed academically, socially, and in their future careers. Using personal stories, she relates to the students and creates a safe space for diverse discussions about ethnicity, belief systems, personal preferences and more.

Keynote: Teen Mom: Reality Show vs Reality
Some teens think pregnancy won’t happen to them. Some intentionally become parents.
Without relying on fear tactics or statics Erica shares her personal story as a teen mom, letting youth get a deeper picture of what life as a teen parent really changes and requires. Perhaps most important is the sensitive look at the emotional triggers that if left unchecked, could lead to teen pregnacy. Erica creates a safe place to explore emotions and experiences that impact teens’ decisions, helping them become more self-aware and their own best advocates.
Workshop: What Do I See For Me?
In this media driven age, teens are increasingly looking outward for direction, turning to TV and online celebrities, sometimes to the extent of losing sight of their own identity to blend with the crowd.
In this 60-90 minute workshop youth are mentored to discover and present what they care about personally, possible futures they see for themselves, and what they would change in their environments.
The result is youth that are connected to their individuality, believe that they can direct the outcome of their lives, and have the ability to articulate personal ideals and goals.
Why is this important? Kids that can do this are more likely to:
- avoid unhealthy habits or relationships
- take personal responsibility for their behavior
- connect with mentors who are willing to help them
