THERE’S ALWAYS A ME TOO ambition.education/theres-always-a-me-too
A movement born from AMBITION (www.ambition.education), a non-profit entrepreneurial program for undeserved youth.
There’s Always a Me Too is a candid platform that upholds the construct of entrepreneurial thinking. It is an affirmation of power, a tool for growth instead of a barrier to resolution.
“Me Too” was ignited by Nancy Gale, founder of AMBITION and luxury handbag line JAMAH. (Her story here: www.jamah.com/about.php), and is based on the concept that for each ‘bad’ or otherwise overwhelming experience that we have, there is always someone else who can say, “Me Too. I had a similar experience and here’s how I grew from it.”
Fueled by the voices of students and entrepreneurs, “Me Too” bridges the gap of age, ethnic and socio-economic barriers to unite us in common circumstance. Once given a powerful voice and focused trajectory for tackling, our problems are no longer a burden worn with pity, but ‘tools in our toolbox’ that we can apply to all facets of our lives. “Me Too” encourages today’s youth to ‘use their voice’ while addressing the overwhelmingly regulatory feedback telling them to delete, refrain or adjust their words.
With “Me Too” participants ranging from tweens to centurions, the willingness to speak is astounding. Participants across the board agree that the intimate, unabridged, uninterrupted “Me Too” forum has invited them, in many cases for the first time, to give voice to their problems and more importantly, take action in resolving them. Taking away the ‘woe is me’ aspect from today’s rapidly growing ‘everyone has a story‘ movement dramatically increases the comfort level to share. The tone of delivery and the solution methodology will affect the storytelling movement in a profound and crucial way.
“Me Too” addresses the fundamental question: What does an entrepreneur do? An entrepreneur identifies problems and implements solutions.
Regardless of one’s entrepreneurial status, the entrepreneurial thought process is the foundation of success. By identifying our own problems and implementing solutions, the process begins at a root level.
AMBITION is in partnership with Environmental Charter High School.
