"Ms. Fernandez spoke to our students in such an uplifting manner. She taught them how to manage their thoughts and calm their minds, giving them relevant information to help them in their personal lives. She was a fantastic speaker, and we are grateful she came to speak with our students."

- Mrs. Johnson

Head of School

"Mary Lynne was an engaging and shared great techniques with our students for helping them handle social issues as a teen and pre-teen. She gave real-life stories the students could relate to and had students participate in activities and discussions. Her talk was inspirational and full of useful ideas for students to change their mindset and calm their minds. I also had the opportunity to read her book and think every parent should read this with their teen. It is empowering and a great guide for youth in today's world."

"Your visit was inspiring!! It was a very positive experience for our students. It showed them that they are not alone, that someone who is an adult experienced some of the things that they are experiencing and that it's okay to open up and share those feelings to get them off their chest and into the open. Thank you for coming into our world and being so open with our kids. Young people and old need all the help, guidance, and assistance that they can get these days and you certainly helped in that arena for them. Mahalo!"

- Lani, 14

"I thought it was inspiring. It was nice to see someone reassure us and remind us that everything will be okay and that we matter."
