YOU ARE NOT DEFINED BY YOUR PAST: Using Your Obstacles To Achieve Success

She was an active ambassador for the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and became a sister of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority. Like so many students, she was preparing for life after college, balancing work, studying furiously and enjoying a full social life.

Then, in her senior year, an extreme health scare brought her world to a halt. Her parents were told to prepare for her final arrangements. She was given a single digit chance of survival.

In this inspiring and empowering keynote, Alexa brings audiences on a captivating journey of adversity, resiliency and overcoming the most frightening situation imaginable.

Of course, most students won’t face a sudden life-threatening illness in their leadership positions and in their personal lives, but the lessons Alexa learned will resonate for anyone struggling to find their way through stress, burnout and extreme frustration.

Alexa, now a successful Millennial entrepreneur, shows how the most incredible setbacks can fuel future success. Student audiences will gain tips on how to find and follow their passions, adopt healthy habits and develop their own inner power of positive thinking.

The pressure to be perfect is paralyzing for many college students. As they acquire debt and face the pressure of life after graduation, it can be hard to feel confident and to love the person you are – right now.

Alexa Carlin specializes in helping young professionals redefine perfection and create their best possible lives. As the founder of the Women Empower Expo she has helped thousands regain confidence and invest in their own potential.

Her empowering keynote, “Authentic Leadership” will help student leaders embrace their true authenticity, gain confidence in their talents and commit to creating the change they imagine in their communities.  Best of all, Alexa helps them build confidence in who they are and turns off the nagging voices in their heads telling them what they should be. She challenges society’s unrealistic construct of perfection, helping students understand that greatness is within their reach.

“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

Too often we fall into the trap of developing a “not good enough” mindset or anxiety over the pressure to succeed and gain the approval of others.  Instead of achieving our dreams, we settle – for the wrong major, the logical internship, the adequate relationship – and deny our full potential.

Alexa went through this unfulfilling struggle while in college, feeling powerless to change her mindset and reach her best potential.  In this upbeat and engaging keynote, she challenges women and men to confront their fears and dive deep into their personal and professional passions. She offers real actionable steps that helped her gain the confidence to start a successful company, become a leader in her sorority and create significant impact on her campus community. She did it, and she believes your leaders can, too.

Alexa’s keynote is a great choice for leadership events kicking off with a positive, can-do message. She has inspired students to pursue leadership roles on campus, achieve greater academic success, create innovative projects, and graduate with possibilities.

Learning Outcomes: Audiences will identify common reasons students are afraid to pursue their passions; explore how limiting-beliefs influence academic and extra-curricular choices; and become empowered to fulfill their greatest potential on and off campus.

Ideal Audiences: Leadership training/organizations, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Student Government, First Year Experience, Convocation, Business/ Entrepreneurship Organizations
