This interactive journey is designed to give participants a glimpse into the real-life experience of Ronnie Sidney II, LCSW.

He will discuss how race, gender, and ability impact student outcomes. Attendees will be introduced to a box of therapeutic tools, including the Nelson Beats the Odds Comic Creator App that can be used to inspire struggling students to beat the odds.

Ronnie Sidney II, LCSW, is a therapist, author, publisher, professional speaker, and business owner from Tappahannock, VA. After working with the northern region REACH program, he is now employed as a Behavioral Health Provider with STG International.
