Act Your Shoe Size, Not Your Age

Act Your Shoe Size, Not Your Age

#TEDxCK 2016 Talk

In an entertaining twist on the common expression “Act your age, not your shoe size!”, Crystal will explain how to tap into your inner child to live a more successful, happy, and meaningful life. From the innocence of youth to the benefits of being honest, her speech will drive you to get in touch with your inner 10-year-old (or whichever shoe size you may be), in order to really enjoy being an adult.

About Crystal

Crystal grew up in Chatham with family in all parts of Chatham-Kent. She attended the University of Windsor for her Bachelor of Arts & Social Sciences degree in family and social relations, as well as her Bachelor of Education.

She is currently an occasional teacher for the Lambton Kent District School Board, and works part-time at Growing Together Family Resource Centre.

She has learned many lessons from working with children of varying abilities over the years, and has a strong interest in promoting gender-neutral teaching and parenting practices, for the sake of a child’s broader experience of the world.

Crystal is also an amateur artist who has had works shown in various exhibits at the Chatham Cultural Centre Thames Art Gallery. She loves to kayak, watch movies, make art, read, rollerblade, bike-ride, dance, do cartwheels, eat ice cream, and laugh.
