Graduating from being a spectator to being spectacular.
On March 11, 2021, over 100 students and mentors joined the Elsie Forum to talk with each other about advocacy and activism. Our keynote speaker, Emmai Alaquiva, talked about graduating from being a spectator to being spectacular.
These were his five steps on how to go from being a spectator to being spectacular:

- Establish your Attributes
- Discover the Possibility
- Allyship & Advocacy
- Activate your Actions
