Meet Jon Jorgenson, one of our speakers at the Circles of Change Conference on March 17th-18th in Phoenix, AZ.
The Circles of Change Conference is about celebrating and inspiring Warriors. So we feature the voices and stories of many, including one brave 8 year old girl who are transforming the culture and conversation in their own lives, their schools, their workplaces, and throughout the world. We are honored to share their wisdom, their art, and their stories with you.
YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN A NUMBER ON THE SCALE. | Jon Jorgenson
Name: Jon Jorgenson
What are you most inspired by at the moment?
A GOOD RUN
When did you first know you wanted to do this work?
IT'S BEEN A SLOW PROGRESSION OVER THE YEARS IN REGARDS TO SPOKEN WORD POETRY. BUT IN THE SECOND GRADE, I PLAYED THE FUNNY ROLE IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY. I MADE THE CROWD LAUGH THAT NIGHT AND I LEARNED THAT SOMETHING I COULD DO OR SAY COULD HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON SOMEONE ELSE. I HAVE BEEN SEEKING TO DO THAT EVER SINCE.
We think it’s so important to encourage women and girls to speak up and be heard, to move beyond the fear. How have you been able to move beyond it?
BY FACING IT TIME AND TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
What do you most embrace about yourself?
What does it mean to you to reclaim health? To redefine beauty? To restore your relationship to your body?
TO CONTINUALLY SEEK A BALANCE BETWEEN CONTENTMENT AND DRIVE. BE CONTENT WITH WHERE YOU ARE, AND ALWAYS DRIVEN TO BETTER YOURSELF. NOT FOR OTHERS, BUT FOR YOURSELF.
