How to turn adversity into gift - Pei Pei
The Unusual School is dedicated to developing emotional intelligence by applying psychology, philosophy, and culture to everyday life. The workshop will be facilitated by a Visually Impaired Facilitator.
Pei Pei began suffering from epilepsy from her late teens till her twenties. The frequent convulsions and side effects due to increase dosage of anticonvulsants in order to suppress the seizures greatly affected her healthy both physically and mentally. She began to gain weight rapidly, feel tired and drowsy all the time, suffer from memory impairment, performed poorly in school and eventually lost interest in life. Despite or perhaps in spite of these tribulations causing her to sink into depression for months, it had ultimately enhanced her resilience and taught her to conceptualize every subsequent challenge as an opportunity to learn and grow.
Join Pei Pei as she share on how she developed a growth mindset and her toolbox of techniques to foster resillience, accepting adversity and challenges as learning opportunities.
