Students in High-Achieving Schools Are Now Named An 'At-Risk' Group
High-performing students today face a unique set of challenges in their pursuit of academic excellence.
The pressure to maintain top grades, excel in extracurricular activities, and secure spots in competitive universities can be overwhelming.
Balancing a rigorous academic schedule with the demands of a social life and personal well-being can lead to stress and burnout.
Additionally, the digital age has introduced new distractions and opportunities for comparison with peers, making it even more challenging to stay focused and maintain a healthy work-life balance.
High-performing students often grapple with high expectations, perfectionism, and the fear of failure, which can take a toll on their mental and emotional well-being.
The presentation was really helpful for me answering questions about myself. I also liked how the speaker was relatable (young).

It was an absolutely moving extremly helpful presentation. As someone who has struggled and has been struggling lately it was exactly what i needed to remind me to keep going. Also, Tori was so kind and supportive and an overall amazing human being.

Being a Young Leader
As a young entrepreneur committed to combating the mental health epidemic, I take pride in the tremendous support I've received from students, administrators, and school counselors.
Leading these interactive presentations for high school students, I've been astounded by the high level of engagement from students.
My relatability and youth enable them to feel truly seen, heard, and understood as I share my own struggles with challenges similar to what they're facing now. I also provide insight into how I overcame these hurdles, which empowers me to serve them effectively today.
As a Tampa native, born and raised, and a former burnout student from the gifted program, I empathize with the overwhelming challenges our students encounter today.
