This week we wrap up our “One Year In” series with guest Ryan Haack, speaker, advocate and author of the children's book, "Different Is Awesome!" We quickly found that Ryan is a fantastic storyteller — and does he have some great stories to tell! Tune in to hear how he came to write his book about living with one hand, how the pandemic has affected his school speaking engagements, and that one really awkward time he got banned from Facebook!
We have another amazing guest for our “One Year In” series this week! Nicole Benedicto Elden, assistant director of Student Counseling Services at The Graduate Center of The City University of NY, talks to us about her experiences over the past year helping grad students through their unique struggles and the difficult changes brought on by life during a pandemic. We were fully impressed with Nicole, who did all this virtually, balanced motherhood on top of it ... and even finished writing a book!
