Psychology Student, Society Member, Thriving
Alyssa Phillips is a member of the Valley City State University Society chapter. A few short months ago, she was inspired by Arianna Huffington's Speaker Broadcast presentation and decided to share her story. On July 15th her story, Learning to Thrive, was published in The Huffington Post. Congratulations Alyssa!
Learning to Thrive
My name is Alyssa Phillips. That in itself for the longest time was insignificant. I was just surviving, just barely getting by, and each day it seemed to be harder and harder to just get by. I had big thoughts but I could never really get to them because of the task of living day to day. I joined The National Society of Leadership and Success because I had big thoughts and I figured why not. It was just another thing that filled my day. The speakers had good messages but not a single one spoke to me until Arianna Huffington started to speak about "Thrive."
