activate Teen Confidence

Michelle Activates the Awesome of teens and young adults, enabling them to build confidence and maximize
their true potential. 

The potential within you right now is 172,666 times more powerful than the most powerful lightning bolt recorded!

That means there are 51.8 trillion volts of energy within you!

Each cell has 1.4 volts of energy.

The average person has 37 trillion cells in their body. 

The most powerful recorded lightning bolt was 300 million volts.

Let’s put things in perspective:

AND THAT’S HOW YOU confidently CREATE A

momentum.

DAILY ACTION CREATES

ACTIVATION LEADS TO

ACTION.

But I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing wrong with you! You’re already awesome, exactly as you are. You just don’t know how to activate it yet.

I’ve interviewed thousands of people, from new graduates to CEOs. Many weren’t connected to their true identity. This disconnect led to stress, anxiety, and depression. They felt disillusioned and overwhelmed. Yes, it’s the norm for many teens (and adults), but it doesn’t have to be your norm.

Twenty-five years of HR, recruitment, and coaching experience taught me that self-confidence is the spark that activates human potential, AKA the awesome. I believe activating the awesome is the missing link to success. And the sooner you learn this valuable life skill, the better!


Most teens and young adults struggle with low self-esteem.

What if your entire being said and believed these statements?

I CAN achieve my goals and create the future of my dreams!

I AM confident!

I AM AWESOME!

I AM worthy!

How would your life change?

Once you see your strengths and Activate the A.W.E.S.O.M.E.®, it’s easy to get excited about life. You start pushing your comfort zone. You confidently (and consistently) take action. And when life gets challenging, you aren’t afraid to lean on your support system so you can continue creating a future that aligns with your dreams.

She truly ignited a spark within every attendee, urging us to unlock our full potential and activate our awesome! With passion, empathy, and profound insights, she inspired us to embrace our strengths, challenge our limitations, and find wonder in the seemingly ordinary. Her words resonated deeply, reminding us that greatness lies within each of us, waiting to be unleashed. She left us with a message of belonging and acceptance. Michelle is truly an awe-inspiring speaker whose impact will resonate far beyond the confines of the event.”
