Youth Aloud Podcast S3E3: Journeys of Self-Confidence

In this episode of Youth Aloud, we’re talking about the importance of having a voice. You’ll be hearing from Nancy Correa on sharing her experience in the foster system, students from Davis High School on the urgent need for everyone to have a voice, and Mela Seyoum on why we still need to speak up and share out today. 

“There’s a list of hurtful words and actions that aren't necessarily pleasant to think back to me. But slowly that circumstance that I was once ashamed deeply of, became a reason that brought value to my existence.”

-Nancy Correa

Sharing our experiences can be scary, it’s a moment of vulnerability. But it’s also important because it can help create a connection between ourselves and others, so it can help others to share their experiences and feel comfortable in their voice. 

“One thing that I would like to accomplish is just making people feel more comfortable about starting conversations whether it's with a lot of people in an audience or if it’s just one-on-one, because I think that we all have so many experiences to share with each other and that it's something that a lot of people don't take advantage of. And everyone knows something you don’t, basically, and when you’re able to start a dialogue with someone, it’s amazing.”

-Davis High School Student
