Candice presented at Essex District High School as our Keynote Speaker surrounding Mental Health and Resilience. Her story was riveting for our students. Immediately she commanded their full attention as she told the difficult story of her childhood and how hard she fought to make it in life. Her struggles were so vast and profound that you sat there wondering, how is she here? How strong do you have to be? Her story taught us all, students and staff alike, that it’s not what happens to you that is important, it’s your perception of it. And you choose your perception, so choose correctly.
Our students were very touched by her no nonsense way of telling her story. Candice’s ability to command the room was amazing. To have high school student’s listen so intently is a testament to her story and her life. Thank you Candice for sharing your amazing story with us.
