The theme of Youth Day 2K18 was “I Have No Reason to Fear” giving the Positively Caviar Team the opportunity to speak to youth and families in Baltimore City about the science of positivity & optimism, overcoming fears, and gaining resilience. Shayma Sulaiman, Chief Program Officer, and Chazz Scott, Chief Creative Optimist, exposed the youth and their families to strategies and tips to reach their fullest potential in life such as: instilling habits to wake up early, how to use “the power of yet”, how to overcome fear, a healthy diet, and the importance of maintaining meaningful relationships. 

Positively Caviar was extremely excited to be a part of this motivational and encouraging event. “It was really humbling to bring people from all ages and all walks of life together to discuss the topic of fear”, said Shayma.” “Although every individual has his or her own separate path we were able to discuss the reasons we fear, the science of fear, and ultimately how to overcome it.” For more information or to find out how to partner with Positively Caviar on future programs, please click here or contact us at info@staybasedandpositive.com.
