About the Lecture
Perfectly You: Reclaim Control of Your Life
Have you recently asked yourself: “What do I want for MY life?”, not your family, not your friends, not your colleagues, but for you. Whether you're about to graduate, a new mom, or a fifty-year-old trying to make a pivot, we all want to find our purpose and be happy... yet oftentimes feel like our future is being decided for us.
Coming off the success of her viral TEDx Talk and Amazon best-selling book, Perfectly You: Embracing the Power of Being Real, Peabody award-winning journalist, speaker, author, and entrepreneur Mariana Atencio will help you uncover the ingredients to your secret sauce to reclaim control of your life and carve your own path. Attendees will be given the tools to discover what makes them special and tap into the limitless power of their authenticity.
Mariana Atencio is a Peabody award-winning news personality, author and public speaker, included in AdWeek’s “Young Influentials”, as well as the co-founder of "Go Like", her multimedia production company.
The Leadership Lectures are presented with the generous support of Amerant Bank.
We would also like to thank our university partner, FIU Honors College for their support.
