The need to stay connected has never been more important than it has been amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. From our chapters to the international organization, the Affirmation community is doing so much to meet this need in new ways that are likely to become a part of Affirmation for many years to come.
At their conference held last month, Affirmation Brazil elected their next president who will serve for two years starting on January 1st, 2020. Elected was Alexsandro Barbosa who has been serving as vice president of Affirmation Brazil.
The conference was an amazing experience, totally unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I had never felt so much like my true self as at the conference, where I could be exactly as I am without being afraid. It was wonderful and I look forward to the next one, as it made all the difference for me.
This year’s theme will be “Looking Upwards: Do not Give Up on Your Challenges, Face Them.” This theme that makes us think about all the challenges we have in our lives, how we should face them and where to get the strength we need.
