Katherine Delmar Burke School
SPEAK is honored to welcome Landon Donovan, former professional soccer player who is widely regarded as the greatest American men’s soccer player of all time. As a student-athlete and young professional athlete, Donovan faced the pressures of competition and the expectations of others at the highest levels. He experienced anxiety, loneliness and, at times, depression while pursuing his greatest passion and career path in soccer. Donovan cares deeply about helping young athletes and students prioritize mental health while in pursuit of their extracurricular and academic goals. As we strive to help our children navigate highly competitive environments, Donovan‘s lived experience and lessons learned offer unique insight and guidance. His talk will inspire, educate, and give parents tools to help our children pursue their passions while preserving—and even strengthening—their mental well-being, resilience and sense of self.
This event is free for La Scuola parents and staff.
