The recent Personal Enrichment Platform (PEP) seminar held at the School of Business brought together students and professionals alike to hear from Rebecca Moore, the Program Coordinator of the Art Council of Greater New Haven, Connecticut.  

Moore shared her inspiring journey of personal and professional growth, emphasizing the importance of trusting one’s inner instincts and pursuing one’s dreams. 

The seminar began with Moore recounting her experience working as a custodian at Yale University.  

Despite earning a decent income, Moore confessed that she harbored a deep fear of stepping into leadership roles and pursuing her true passions. She highlighted the internal struggles she faced and the pivotal moments that eventually led her to break free from her self-imposed limitations. 

“It was terrifying to think about leaving the comfort of a stable job and venturing into the unknown,” Moore said. “But I knew deep down that I couldn’t ignore my longing to be a leader and make a meaningful impact in my community.” 

Moore’s story resonated with many attendees who could relate to the challenges of overcoming self-doubt and embracing change. Throughout her presentation, Moore emphasized the importance of trusting one’s instincts and taking calculated risks to achieve personal and professional fulfillment. 

“It’s easy to second-guess ourselves and succumb to the fear of failure,” Moore said. “But sometimes, the greatest growth comes from stepping outside of our comfort zones and embracing new opportunities.” 

In addition to sharing her personal journey, Moore offered practical advice to students on how to navigate their own paths toward success. She encouraged them to identify their passions and pursue them relentlessly, even in the face of adversity. 

“Your dreams may seem daunting at first, but with determination and perseverance, anything is possible,” Moore said. “Don’t be afraid to seek support from mentors and peers who can offer guidance and encouragement along the way.” 

One of the highlights of Moore’s presentation was her discussion of how she launched her own podcast, which has since become a platform for sharing stories of resilience and empowerment within the community.  

She spoke passionately about the power of storytelling as a tool for inspiring change and fostering connections among diverse audiences. 

“Through my podcast, I’ve had the privilege of amplifying voices that are often overlooked or marginalized,” Moore said. “It’s been a humbling experience to witness the impact of sharing authentic stories and creating spaces for meaningful dialogue.” 

As the seminar came to a close, attendees expressed their gratitude to Moore for her candid insights and unwavering optimism. Many left feeling inspired and motivated to pursue their own aspirations with renewed vigor and determination.
