FORMER FOSTER YOUTH TURNED SOCIAL WORK SPEAKER & AUTHOR TO PRESENT AT CONVOCATION FOR SOUTHERN ADVENTIST UNIVERSITY DURING SOCIAL WORK MONTH – CHATTANOOGA, TN

— Inspiring Students to Make a Difference in Their Communities & Live Happier

National #SocialWorkMonth is intended to bring heightened awareness to the Social Work profession. It is organized by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). Their theme this year for Social Work Month is Forging Solutions out of Challenges, which is something Travis Lloyd knows all too well.

Travis Lloyd once received social services as a youth who experienced foster homes, group homes, and being institutionalized all before the age of 11.

Fortunately, he was able to evade the path to prison that youth like him usually take. Only 3% of people like Travis ever graduate with a four year degree before the age of 25. Yet he graduated from college at 22 and built a career in serving professions. He worked as a Registered Nurse as well as served as a community based Mental Health Mobile Crisis Worker and Life Coach.

He now serves as an inspirational speaker, author, and change agent. Travis also sits on the board of a national non-profit that serves to improve outcomes for people who grew up in foster care.

With a growing platform that includes personal life stories in addition to offering multiple perspectives as a health care professional, his book Overcoming Emotional Trauma serves to help people from all walks of life learn to have deeper relationships and increased purpose in life.

His focus for this presentation is helping the college students better learn how to deal with difficult situations and be more focused on creating a stable and balanced life so that they can support others in difficult times.

Lloyd also presents on other topics such as:

· Finding Passion & Purpose
· Emotional Wellness
· Choosing The “Right” Friends
· Overcoming Adversity
· Striving To Be YOUR Best
· The Importance of Mentors
