CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Social anxiety is one of the major challenges for high school and college ladies.
“When I sent out emails asking you about challenges, the No. 1 thing I heard was that you struggle with social anxiety,” said Theresa Rose, who spoke during the ninth annual Women Changing the Face of Agriculture event organized by Illinois Agri-Women.
“This is a really important thing to work through, and do it now as opposed to later,” Rose stressed during her keynote speech. “Because that will keep you from realizing your fullest potential if you aren’t going to show up.”
