Chris Bashinelli, actor, activist, TV host of “Bridge the Gap”
Thursday, March 3, 8:00 – 9:40 a.m.

Have you ever been uncertain of your life’s direction after graduation? How can you create your own venture? How can you be sure you’re on the path to achieving your career dreams? Chris Bashinelli can’t give you the answer, but he’ll give you a very good start. At 20 years of age, Chris gave up his acting career, moved to Tanzania and discovered his true calling. Now this UN Speaker and Nat Geo Explorer will share concrete examples colored by international adventures that can help us ignore the noise and find meaning in our lives.
