[NY] Unpacking Anxiety

  • NYU Kimmel Center - CMEP Lounge 60 Washington Square South New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

Creators: Sooah Kwak, Co-founder of Quiet Girl Collective, and Cassandra Lam, Co-founder of The Cosmos

Quiet Girl Collective and The Cosmos are joining forces to talk about anxiety - the ways in which it shows up for us and how to manage when feeling overwhelmed.  We’ll discuss why we get anxious in the ways that we do and explore how this relates to our identities as women of color:

  • Identifying toxic messaging and sources in our lives: family, friends, work, media, society
  • How anxiety and stress manifests in our lives
  • Acknowledging what's in our control vs. not in our control
  • Managing negative self-talk to practice self-affirmation
