    We Set Our Own Standards Now with Angelique Garcia

    You have the power & freedom to choose how you want to live. You don’t have to live up to any expectations placed on you.
    Do you believe that?
    In today’s Courageous Conversation, Amy is joined by Angelique Garcia. Angelica is a first generation college student finishing up her freshman year at Cleveland State University, where she is on the track and field team as a thrower. Today, she is sharing her story about how fitting into the standard is NOT important anymore and never should be.
    Amy and Angelique sit down to debunk common societal standards for women, such as the pressure to attend college, have life fully figured out by a certain age, or always be “nice.” They discuss the importance of authenticity and following one’s own path.
    More in this episode:
    Reject societal norms and celebrate your individuality, recognizing the beauty in your differences.
    Surround yourself with people who uplift and support you, and don’t hesitate to ask for help when necessary.
