We had an unforgettable time in Tallahassee for the 10th annual PeaceJam Southeast conference hosted by Kailash Satyarthi! We can't wait to see you all next year! @peacejamse #PeaceJamSE #ChangeStartsHere

PeaceJam Southeast, how do I thank you?
You ignited a fire in me that I didn’t know existed. You created a space for me to embrace myself as a Latinx Woman on our campus. You deepened the roots of my faith as I found the love of God within each relationship I formed. You took me across borders and overseas to share and learn from others’ experiences and cultures. But most importantly, you provided a platform that allowed me to find my calling!
This was my last PeaceJam Conference at FSU as the Mentor Coordinator and one of my most memorable ones too. Not only because it was my last, but because there was something so powerful and moving about this year.
So here is to:
Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel Peace Prize Winner and an anti-child-slavery activist, who walked on our campus with the most humble and loving spirit I have ever experienced. He set the tone for a conference that enabled youth to believe they are the solution to the challenges we are currently facing. He shared his wisdom and his heart with every individual at our conference.
To @bjoewolf (Pulse Shooting Survivor), Connor, and Isa (Parkland Shooting Survivors), thank you for being brave and sharing your stories with us. Your voices matter and moved all of our hearts to stand up against violence and injustice in our society.
To my amazing mentors and incredible staff that helped us pull this incredible experience off! I couldn’t have done any of this without you!
and finally, to Rody (PeaceJam Southeast Director). It was PeaceJam’s 10th Anniversary this year. Meaning, it was Rody’s 10th year of giving everything she had to ensure that youth all over our region got a glimpse of hope, love, and empowerment to be agents of social change in our community. Rody, you have touched the lives of so many. I really don’t know how to put into words what you mean to me! You have changed my life and have contributed so much to my personal and professional growth. More than a fantastic boss, you are my friend and second mother. Thank you for loving me so relentlessly.
So with an honored and humbled heart,
Thank you PeaceJam!

Wonderful weekend in Tallahassee for the 10th annual PeaceJam Conference!! #peacejamse #grahamcountypeacejam #peacejam2018 #kailashsatyarthi

I attended the 2018 PeaceJam Conference at Florida State University with two of the best teachers in the world and with some of my best friends from our PeaceJam group at RPBHS! From the silly car rides with my teachers and peers, to getting to meet Kailash Satyarthi while lighting a candle with him at the PeaceJam Ceremony of Inspiration, to getting to publicly speak and perform in front of an amazing crowd at Open Mic Night, the PeaceJam Conference was a blast! And let's not forget the workshops and family groups that everyone was assigned, because those were equally as amazing! Can't wait to come back next year!!❤❤❤ #peacejamse #peacejamconference #jamily #yay #kailashsatyarthi #nobelpeaceprize #amazing #peacejam #floridastateuniversity

From marching for human rights in the rain to our #jamily groups to our wonderful nobel peace prize winner to our AMAZING dance moves, I’d have to say that #peacejamse was a success this year 😁💕 It’s always such a positive space and always an honor to be a part of it. See you next year!

I had so much fun this weekend at the @peacejamse conference! I'm so grateful to have been given the opportunity to meet such amazing people and to serve as an advocate for equality, self-acceptance, love and peace alongside my fellow mentors and coaching staff. Thanks to everyone who helped make this experience one I will never forget. 💜💜💜💜 #mypeacejammoment #peacejamse

It’s not every day that you can say you’ve shared genuine love and happiness with an extraordinary group of people, or especially that you got to listen to and even dance with a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate...PeaceJam, thank you for being an organization that has enlightened me and truly made me a better human being #peacejamse #kailashsatyarthi

April 7th, 2018: This has been the cutest trip 🚗✨ I have laughed a LOT, met extraordinary people, heard amazing and inspirational stories... The March we did today (with the purpose of creating awareness of human rights) was definitely, my best part of the day. I really felt the mottos‼️ especially because I wish, with ALL my heart that one day the situation of my country, Venezuela, will change; and the government will start to RESPECT human lives. This made me remember a lot about student marches in Venezuela months ago... and how many many students died... The words of Kailash Satyaharti motivated me, I have to be persistent and maintain the hope of improvement en mi BELLISIMA VENEZUELA ☺️. Acotación 👀: En la unión está la fuerza 🇻🇪. No solo se trata de mantener la fe y tener el sueño de una mejor Venezuela, pero también de TOMAR ACCIÓN y empezar a contribuir para un mejor país. Como empiezo yo? Bueno aquí estoy, abriendo mi corazoncito y escribiéndoles un post dedicado a la democracia, a la humanidad, a la justicia, y sobretodo a mi sueño de una mejor Venezuela. 🙆🏽‍♀️ Favorite Quote: “no power in the world is stronger than the power of you” - K.S
