Speaker Topic - Discover Your Path
In 2001, Heather and JP met during their first semester at USC. JP asked Heather for her phone number their first week in mandatory athletic study hall, and that exchange sparked the beginning of a priceless friendship. They talked about their struggles with the coaches and their dreams of success. It was clear that they were both driven and competitive, but felt misunderstood by the athletic department at USC. They were thankful that their souls crossed paths at this trying time in their lives. Both felt in their intuition, even at 18, that it was meant to be. They wanted to build a long lasting path and family together for better and for worse. By tackling problems as a team, Heather and JP proved that they could count on each other in good times and in bad. They know the foundation they have built over the years will serve them positively forever. It was through these stories of hardship and triumph that Heather conceived Discover Your Path. Heather and JP understand how easily life circumstances can steer people away from their overall goals and dreams. They believe that right now our society is tougher than ever for kids to grow up in. The Howell’s want Discover Your Path to be a place where kids can feel confident in choosing the right direction for their path. Both of them were fortunate to have strong role models in their lives, and now they hope to be a positive influence for the next generation.
