Radhika Samant, Chief Financial Officer, Namely
"Being part of a high growth, fast paced environment brings challenges along with successes and it is important to carve out intentional time to center and ground ourselves so we can bring our best selves forward each and every day."
Michelle Allen, Principal, Icahn Charter School 4
"Move This World has helped our students to understand, engage, express, and manage their emotions in a healthy way. My students begin each day by watching and practicing along with a short Move This World video, which allows them to move around, breathe, take note of, and release any emotional stressors they may have carried into the classroom with them. The daily rituals promote self-expression, team building, and acceptance which subsequently helps them to tap into their full academic and creative potential and affords students the opportunity to greet each school day with an unburdened and open mind."
Kimi Mongello, Communications Designer, SumAll
"Working at a high growth, fast paced start-up, we were driving so much forward that often times there would be communication breakdowns among the team, especially between different divisions of the company- engineers to designers to product managers. Move This World gave us the tools needed to build trust and cultivate open communication across teams. I became better equipped to navigate difficult conversations and relieve stressful situations. These improvements gained more time for productivity and helped SumAll reach company wide goals."
Carlos, 9th Grader, Renaissance Charter School
"Move This World has improved my ability to express myself around others. Also being given the opportunity to work with the younger grades helped not only me, but all of us have better interactions with them since we do share the school environment with the younger grades."
Adam Lowy, Founder & Executive Director, Move for Hunger
"Thanks again for sharing that exercise. The team really responded positively to it, and I can honestly say it was one of the best ways to kick off a meeting we've ever done."
Debra Washington, Teacher, Howard County Public Schools
“This is my second training with Move This World. Once again, I have gained a reflective perspective about myself and how I respond to situations. With others being trained we will all begin to work together towards a common good.”
Madeline Scheffler, Drama Teacher & Arts Coordinator, New Bridges
"As busy, hardworking educators we rarely have time to stop and reflect about our day, let alone year. On top of that, there is never the time or setting to come together as a staff to openly reflect and share. With Move This World's tools, we are able to be truthful with ourselves and with one another. These truths allow us to address some much needed struggles we all go through in a healthy way. I am so grateful to have been given the time and space to acknowledge all parts of my experience this year at school- not just my own lesson plans or student behavioral issues- but as a living, feeling, and breathing human who does challenging work alongside other adults day in and day out."
Misty Bright, Managing Partner, Intupower
"I love the contribution that Move This World is making to the ripple effect that is taking place in the area of self development.”
Tabassum, 11th Grader, Renaissance Charter School
"I thank Move This World for having been part of my life. I felt a kind of freedom in me that allowed me to do things I would have never seen myself doing. I became more accepting and tolerant. I accepted my responsibilities in this program and I went through with them, which helped me to grow into a better person. Acceptance was probably the most important thing I learned this year. I can see thousands of opportunities where I can apply what I have learned and the skills that I have gained."
