Dr. Schon Wade empowers others by being herself. As the Training and Special Projects Coordinator, she brings personal experience and professional expertise to her role, while emphasizing the importance of self-acceptance.

“I think empowerment comes from within,” she explains. “It’s the internal strength to do what you want, be what you want and contribute to the world as you are.” For Dr. Wade, this sentiment rings true. Interweaving experiences from her role at Felton Institute as well as her personal life, she shares her insights on agency, self-power, and the importance of supporting one another.
