Course Description 
This course, offered as part of the Collegiate Leadership Institute (CLI) program, will dive deeper into Anastasia Penright’s 2020 TEDTalk. Students will practice everyday scenarios that apply to both collegiate and professional roles including interning at corporations. Students will learn to focus on the most important person in the situation - YOU - and ensure you protect your peace.

Anastasia (Stacy) Penright is a corporate business initiatives consultant with Wells Fargo by day and a community leader by night. Throughout her career, Anastasia Penright has found ways to incorporate service into her life. She started out by volunteering with local organizations, feeding the hungry, teaching financial literacy and mentoring young students, among other activities. In 2015, recognizing an unaddressed need, Penright created the nonprofit Respect MyVoice, which offers free community educational seminars devoted to building wealth, personal branding, health and wellness, and communication. She has been in Houston for more than a decade, by way of New Orleans.

The CLI program is based on work partially supported by Keysight Technologies and General Motors.
