Acclaimed international social coach, JT Tran, to speak at
NU’s Asian American Heritage Week
BOSTON – Internationally acclaimed social coach, motivational speaker, author and ABC’s of Attraction founder JT Tran has teamed up with Northeastern University students to help break the silence about the troubling effects of both external and internalized racial stereotypes among Asian Americans.
On Feb. 13, from 6 – 7:30 p.m., Tran will provide an exclusive keynote presentation:
“I want them to first understand the challenges Asian American men (and women) face out in the real world, both professionally and romantically,”
“I will also present a holistic solution that will not only address specific skillsets, but also to tackle larger lifestyle issues,” Tran added.
Tran’s highly-anticipated, award-winning presentation will be held at the McCleod Suites in the campus’ Curry Student Center, and is hosted by the Vietnamese Student Association and the Asian American Center. While not open to the general public, event organizers are expecting a great turnout from the student body for Tran’s presentation and hope that it will make a profound impact on Northeastern’
“The goal of the event is to bring focus to issues affecting the Asian-American community such as how negative stereotypes and low levels of confidence affect Asian males,” said Danny Chen, one of the event’s organizers. “We hope the audience will be able to learn from [Tran’s] discussion about his own hurdles and how he overcame them to get to where he is today. We want the audience to leave with a better understanding of social issues affecting Asian Americans while still having a good time.”
In keeping with the event’s theme, “Shattering Expectations,”
“I am very honored to accept the invitation to speak at Northeastern University,”
