What can attendees takeaway from a Told They Can’t event?
Boldness to refuse being told they can’t, even by those in authority. Rather, aspiring to become all they possibly can.
Ability to reject being shamed if they come from a broken home, or poverty, or have experienced extraordinary challenges. Owning it, knowing the experience gives one an advantage in life.
Confidence it’s possible to overcome any and all adversity they face if they refuse to give up as evidenced by those featured in the Told They Can’t film.
Inclusive understanding that every child is endowed with the same limitless human potential, no matter background, ethnicity, social status or family income. As such, deserves to be treated with dignity and given opportunity.
