#LPpresents: Speaker Kinja Dixon

Wednesday, April 19 at 7:00 pm in the Blackwell Ballroom

Kinja is a great motivational speaker. “It’s not what happens to you…it is how you respond to what happens to you.” Kinja Dixon did not always believe this statement. A large portion of his life consisted of being consumed by outside events that would fully control his thoughts and feelings internally. Each time he was “HIT” with a curve ball in his life he would always run “HOME.” Home could be a number of activities that would take him away and make him forget that he was hurting like excessive TV watching, drinking, partying and over-eating. What do you do to feel safe when you are faced with an obstacle? Is it doing more harm than good? In this interactive keynote, Kinja shares a simple approach on how changing your perception on difficulties you face can make a real impact. Learn how to take life’s “HITS” and transform them into “HOME RUNS.” Sponsored by: Lancer Productions and the Office of Citizen Leadership and Social Justice Education Questions?
