Freedom Seminar helped Jenny Parker make some life-changing decisions.
“The seminar is intrapersonal and interpersonal at the same time. That’s what makes it unique. I found myself changing when I was helping someone else. That cemented the fact for me that I want to do this for the rest of my life. I want to help people.”
After the seminar, she changed her major to psychology and transferred to a different university.
Before the seminar, she says she felt she had to finish college before impacting the world. “But I discovered I don’t have to wait until later to be me. I can live a fulfilled life now.” The seminar gave her the courage and confidence to teach English as a second language in Vietnam last summer.
“Before I wouldn’t have even looked at the possibility of doing something like this. There was fear in going, but Freedom gave me the tools to work through that. I thought, ‘OK, this is what I’m afraid of, now I can do something about it and move on.’”
