A special animated film and discussion/lecture with educator and animator extraordinaire, and Summer Program student, Hanan Harchol.

Harnessing the immense power of Humility!

Can being humble actually be a source of strength? What does it mean to be “like the earth?” How can I let go of needing the recognition of others, and if I support the advancement of others, can it lead to my own growth as well? What does it mean to bend?
