From a Cardboard House to the White House Session Description
Until the age of 13, Mona Dixon and her family were homeless and sleeping on the streets and in shelters. A few years later, she was named Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Youth of the Year Award winner, honored by U.S. President Barack Obama in the Oval Office, and received a Presidential Appointment to the Corporation for National & Community Service to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. Ms. Dixon will share her powerful story of overcoming homelessness to become a presidential appointee, teen empowerment leader, author, success coach, and PhD candidate.
Conference Close Session Description
Finally, we’ll come back together one last time for some reminders, next steps, and a heartfelt “see you soon.” We’ll share how you can continue the conversation – and if you can stay for a few extra minutes, join us for the After Hours Zoom. We’ll all be able to turn on our cameras and spend a few minutes celebrating you!
