Luncheon Keynote Speaker
Esteban Gast, What Gets in the Way of Kindness?
In this talk, former teacher turned comedian Esteban Gast uses humor and his personal story as a first-generation American to talk about the question we should be asking: what stops us from being kind?
This talk is accessible for students, yet dives into big issues. Like fear.
The journey to being the best versions of ourselves is filled with fear. Fear is a really powerful feeling, but just because we FEEL afraid doesn’t mean we have to live our lives SCARED. Fear is a feeling, but Kindness is a choice - a choice we are capable of making even when we are uncomfortable, terrified, or hurt. And, sometimes, all it takes is one powerful, kind, courageous choice to change an entire community.
