Fireside Chats: Let’s Talk… Growth Mindset

Wednesday, October 14 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Hosted by Sanskriti

As academics and life in general gets overwhelming, it is extremely important to remind ourselves to stay positive. This session is an opportunity for everyone to learn and share how we can improve the way we talk to ourselves. Let’s take this opportunity to exchange ways in which we can make use of positive affirmations to keep ourselves motivated. Through this, we can remind each other that what we say to ourselves matters and the difference it can make in our attitudes.
