Public Affairs - Inspirational Workshops

As a black youth in the Seattle public school district over 15 years ago, Theresa Hardy was provided with a standardized curriculum that lacked the opportunity for her to explore her own strengths and creativity. She didn't feel embraced to believe that she could do more, be more, and ended up perpetuating racial biases, becoming another high school dropout. Through hard work and grit, she found her own path to success. She graduated from college and started a fulfilling career helping others who experience similar struggles. This interview is not about her, it's about her mission: To help individuals and groups find a path to their own success. That's how she decided to start Inspirational Workshops, with the goal of empowering local students to pursue higher education, gain meaningful employment, and create jobs within their communities. We were recently joined by the Theresa Hardy herself, Allani Seals, Coordinator to the Trailblazers program at Inspiration Workshops, and two of their students, Kimilo Jahn, a 7th grade student, and Sharae Miller, an 8th grade student.
