Tasha's story of tragedy, transformation, and triumph inspires students to know, no matter how dark things can get, there is hope.
A highly sought after speaker, she has inspired thousands of students throughout the nation, from upper elementary to high school.
Tasha is an absolute must in every school. With the alarming rise in suicide, along with the need for mental health education, Tasha will positively redirect students to combat the issues schools face today.
"We are very pleased to see you did your homework on how to safely talk about suicide – especially with such a vulnerable age group. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to this topic and beyond. Resilience needs to be taught and your curriculum does a great job in introducing the topic and giving real tools to prepare for and overcome life's inevitable adversities."
