white house conveing

On May 28th 2015, I was invited to attend a convening at the White House in my role as a young adult consultant with ICF International Inc. in Collaboration with the Federal Children’s Bureau to provide feedback around the topic of normalcy and adolescent brain development. The experience was enlightening and presented the opportunity to be surrounded by so many amazingly brilliant people.
