LET'S INSPIRE STUDENTS TOGETHER!

Alicia Caldwell believes every student deserves the chance to lead a healthy and fulfilling life and understands that some students don't have the best start. She wants to let those students know that overcoming the odds of adverse circumstances is possible and that her life is a testament to that truth.

Alicia's relatable delivery and welcoming persona draw students into her message of courage, resilience, and transformation. Through small intentional choices and consistency, she was able to move the needle toward the life she desired and deserved, and she provides action steps on how your students can too.

 

Alicia weaves engaging storytelling into practical strategies for leading a mentally resilient lifestyle that increases student academic engagement and retention while reducing stress and the risk of student burnout. At the end of her discussion, students will have tangible strategies and inspired energy to take action on their academic and personal success.

"TELLING STUDENTS WHAT TO DO IS NOT ENOUGH.
WE HAVE TO SHOW THEM AND
CREATE SAFE SPACES FOR THEM TO EXPLORE AND PRACTICE.

As a first-generation college graduate,  Alicia has a special place in her heart for students. Despite difficult childhood circumstances, she embarked on a journey of leveraging her academic abilities to change the direction of her life. Alicia used the pain of childhood adversity to fuel her pursuit of success through higher education, and she wants to empower the current and next generation of college students to do the same.

Alicia has made it part of her mission to inspire students to break through barriers by strengthening their mental and emotional endurance while achieving personal, relational, and academic success.
