Better than Buzzfeed: Everything You Need to Know About Healthy Relationships

Dating, sex, and relationships are an important aspect of the college social experience. From crushes and flirty Snapchats to first loves and breakups – romantic relationships are a rollercoaster of emotions and life lessons. Because the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on almost every area of our life – including self-esteem, stress levels, and productivity – we need to choose and foster relationships carefully. By sharing her years of experience and expertise, relationship expert Rachel DeAlto creates a comfortable space for discussion with helpful information that students can’t get from another college-aged friend or Buzzfeed article. She explains how everyone deserves to have healthy relationships. While they aren’t always easy, there is never an excuse for violence or abuse. Healthy relationships are built on a foundation of self-worth within each person, and respect for one another. Unfortunately, violence and disrespect are currently very common in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships. In fact, 1 in 5 college women will experience violence in a relationship during college. It’s time for that to change, and it starts from within. In this keynote, Rachel helps students assess the health of their relationships both with themselves and with others, allowing them to take control of their happiness and prevent unnecessary pain. Rachel utilizes personal stories of overcoming heartbreak and low self-esteem, coupled with motivation and necessary humor, to empower students to make smart choices that allow them to feel safe and confident in their relationships.

  • what expectations they should set to build healthy relationships,

  • how to prevent potentially toxic relationships.

Unmasking Leadership

In a world where we all seem to wear a limitless number of masks (or Instagram filters), it is easy to hide behind false identity. The world doesn’t have to be a masquerade. It’s time that unmask the power of authenticity and vulnerability. Everyone has a story. Everyone has struggles, insecurities, and flaws. What if we all recognized the power in sharing our truths rather than painting a picture of perfection? The best leaders inspire as they draw from a well of strength and humility that comes from the confidence of being comfortable with oneself – flaws and all.

Through this program, your students will learn how you can connect with others and reach your greatest potential through self-awareness, vulnerability, and confidence in being exactly who you are.

Yes, No, Maybe?

Mutual, verbal, unambiguous, conscious agreement to engage in sexual activity. Sounds romantic, right? Well, it can be when you learn how to explore affirmative consent in a way that makes sense, feels natural, and leaves all involved feeling secure and confident about their sexual experience. Sexual assault on campus is rampant. Recent statistics show that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 33 men will experience sexual assault by the time they graduate. Consent is an essential component to reducing those assaults, and most colleges (and many state legislatures) are now recognizing the need for affirmative consent, where yes means yes is the only standard. No means no is no longer enough. In this keynote, Rachel explains why communication is not just the key to relationships, but when it comes to sex on campus, communication is required. Rachel shares her relationship expertise to entertain and engage students while leaving them with a clear understanding of how to successfully have these crucial conversations.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, students will learn:

  • how to define what affirmative consent is or isn’t,
  • why affirmative consent is required,

  • the role that alcohol and drugs play in obtaining consent.

Let’s talk about some social media bull$hit. I took this pic yesterday and sent it to a friend when she asked what I was up to. I considered posting it here with a message about loving every second of life, which I do. But yesterday was not a joy filled …

This literally made me laugh out loud. Life summed up right there. We plan. God laughs. Failure has been my greatest teacher. Flow is where it’s at.
Thanks for the image @yourkickasslife

Happy birthday from me and that tuft of hair to my girl @xenstrength. You’re pure kindness despite your argument that you have sass. Love you, our playa bowl dates, and taking you into the weight room. May this be your best year yet! Remembering that tim…

I’m pretty positive. I always try to find the light or the lesson. But sometimes I get pissed or sad or cranky (like right now with this cold). We’re all living a very human experience. Everyone gets to have bad days. It doesn’t change your core.
