The GoStrengths! mission:
- To engage and unite a community of humanoids interested in the science of well-being
- To provide programs which tap into and unleash the natural strengths within every humanoid
- To arm youthlings with the skill set to mitigate youth depression and anxiety
- To deliver affordable technology which make these pursuits accessible to anyone
My name is Renee Jain (pronounced Ree-knee Jane) and I’m the chief storyteller here at GoStrengths! Many of the scenarios you find within the program are based on the challenges I faced while growing up.
You see, I never learned to cope with adversity-not properly, at least. I was the queen of exaggeration… little molehills in my life regularly blew up into mountains of pain and sorrow. I often suffered in silence clutching onto my motto, “No one gets it.”
I learned much later in life that people do indeed understand what kids go through when they feel anxious, depressed, misunderstood, or just plain stressed out. I learned there are effective methods to cope with problems and increase one’s resilience. I also discovered beyond the capacity to survive, it is possible to learn how to thrive. Happiness is a skill which can be practiced, and life can offer deep meaning, purpose, and joy.
With the help of Neutrino, I hope to take the lessons I have gleaned through my personal and professional experience and pass them on to as many other humanoids as possible!
