Kelsey Tainsh: Center for Student Leadership

On Friday, 1/25 Kelsey Tainsh came to CEC to give a presentation on her life and struggles in the auditorium, in front of the entire student body. After the inspirational talk, she came to the Center for Student Leadership to talk closey with a group of students for a breakout session where she discussed how she overcame her struggles by showing how they can turn them into positves. 

Successfully overcoming a brain tumor at only 5 years of age, Kelsey went on to be a happy, healthy kid and a champion athlete. 10 years later, at 15, it all came crashing down when the tumor returned followed by a crippling stroke. Her friends had disappeared, her right side didn’t function and she became paralyzed with fear and self-doubt.  Despite her significant physical challenges, she worked hard to pull herself up and charged back into life graduating magna cum laude from the University of Florida and going on to work for one of the most recognized companies in the world

As we wrapped up the first semester, CEC students laughed, danced, and cried as Kelsey inspired us all to share our struggles and differences instead of hiding them, and how to turn uncomfortable situations into life-changing opportunities.
