Connection, Community, and COVID19
The coronavirus has impacted every age group and every aspect of our lives. While college students have endured less harm to their physical health due to COVID19, their mental health has been affected in ways we are still trying to understand. From the disruptions to their education to diminished interactions, young people will need to rely on new kinds of connections in order to survive and heal. In this new talk that can be delivered virtually or in-person, TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski emphasizes the power of community and how technology can provide a much needed lifeline. Drawing on his own experiences, from the loneliness of living in a new city during a pandemic to testing positive for COVID19, Jamie seeks to assure audiences that they are not alone in this strange season and the best way through is to connect with each other openly and honestly.
He wants you to know your story makes today better.
Jamie spends much of his time on the road, telling the TWLOHA story and bringing a message of hope to audiences at universities, concerts, and conferences across America. His work has taken him to Australia, the United Kingdom, India, and Iraq. Jamie has been interviewed by CNN, NBC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, and Rolling Stone Magazine. A proud uncle, Jamie is also a lifelong surfer, basketball fan, and music lover. He lives in Melbourne Beach, Florida.
