“I want to be happy”. Her interest in happiness never dwindled. As an adult her dream was to bring happiness to children. She brought together a team of neuroscientists, doctors, educators, and positive psychologists to study happiness. They created a curriculum and foundation called Mind Up . They use practices that are evidence based and backed by neurological research. The Mind Up curriculum teaches children how to quiet their mind, relax, reduce stress, develop pro-social behaviors, and learn about the brain to better understand human behavior. Optimistic classrooms that have a sense of hopefulness and joy are becoming an actuality because of her vision.
