We're going to explore the F word...Okay, not that F word – the other one, ‘Failure’. Any worthwhile effort in pursuing your dreams will more often than not result in making mistakes or defeat. In fact, failure can be an indicator that you're discovering capabilities while being presented with an opportunity to go beyond your limitations. At the NAAAP Toronto Spotlight on Screw-Ups, messing up and failing is celebrated. Join us with a panel of some who have grinded their way through, some who are still a work in progress and some who will share insightful experiences.  Through it all, you'll learn to realize and appreciate your worth while respecting yourself more. 

At the conclusion of the panel, an open mic segment will invite audience participation who will also have an opportunity to briefly share their own story of breakthrough and resilience.   Introducing special guest panelists..
