This event suitable for youth 12+. It will be recorded and available on FAN’s website and YouTube channel.


What does it mean to own one’s ambition? What does it take to reimagine how we strive, amid burnout, pressure, and profound shifts across one’s career, life, and wants? Join Maggie Smith (FAN ’20), poet and New York Times bestselling author of You Could Make This Place Beautiful, and Rainesford Stauffer (FAN ’21), journalist and author of All the Gold Stars: Reimagining Ambition and the Ways We Strive, for a conversation on ambition. From norms of ambition that deem some “too ambitious,” to what kind of ambition and work are celebrated, this conversation will focus on how ambition plays out across personal, professional, and creative lives–how we shape it, and how it shapes us. Over the course of their discussion, Smith and Stauffer will explore ambition, work, and identity, and how those themes come through in their work.
