This website is about downs and ups, rejection and selection, failures, setbacks and ultimate personal victories.  It features student, faculty, staff, and alumni stories of failures and successes.  It shares the stories we want to tell, those we have kept hidden, and those we tell to help others and ourselves.  We invite you to explore, watch, listen and participate on this site.  Share it. Come back often.


This website is the product of collaboration among individuals who came together with the common goal of creating a site to foster resilience and encourage honest conversations.  Its vibrant color is a blending of Penn’s red and blue, highlighting both the spectrum and the unity of our experiences.
