Avery Stark is a student at Saint Andrew’s School and is a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, site of a horrific school shooting on Valentine’s Day 2018. How can we move ahead from trauma? In a stirring, vulnerable talk, Stark offers advice on how humans can move forward to evolve into their altered world — and invites people into her world on February 14th, 2018. Above all, she asks us to have sympathy towards those going through a trauma.
