FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – When 160,000 chil­dren miss school ev­ery day, de­ter­min­ing why is es­sen­tial. Ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion As­so­ci­a­tion, the why is based on their fear of at­tack or in­tim­i­da­tion by other stu­dents.

En­ter Si­mone Ali­cia, cer­ti­fied N.L.P. (Neuro-Lin­guis­tic Pro­gram­ming) prac­ti­tioner and mo­ti­va­tional coach, also known as the “Self Es­teem Doc­tor,” who works to raise the self-es­teem, mind­ful­ness and com­mu­ni­ca­tion of South Florida’s kids and teens. Those top­ics and more are the fo­cus of her third an­nual Self Es­teem Sum­mer Con­fer­ence on June 3, at the Ritz Carl­ton Ho­tel (1 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304) from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.

“We are all liv­ing in a time now, where it has be­come more vi­tal than ever to raise the col­lec­tive con­scious­ness about the true value and power of healthy self­es­teem in the lives of chil­dren, teens and the fam­ily unit as a whole. It’s a fun­da­men­tal key to shap­ing the fu­ture of our planet, and we need to start teach­ing it on pur­pose,” said Ali­cia.

The theme for this year’s con­fer­ence is based on one of Ali­cia’s Mind­set-based Teach­ings. She is launch­ing the T.SED TV chan­nel on YouTube to high­light the power kids have to steadily im­prove their at­ti­tude and mind­set us­ing sub­con­scious lan­guage, pos­i­tive me­dia pro­gram­ming, and em­pow­er­ment games.

The Self Es­teem Sum­mer Con­fer­ence is once again “giv­ing kids and teens FREE ac­cess to real tools to help them be­lieve in them­selves, over­come neg­a­tiv­ity like bul­ly­ing and have the courage to grow into their real pur­pose,” said Ali­cia. “At the end of this con­fer­ence, they’ll be one step closer to con­fi­dently con­tribut­ing the best of them­selves at school, at home, and to the world.”

More than 400 stu­dents have at­tended the con­fer­ence in the past two years. With the sup­port of lo­cal busi­nesses, a lim­ited num­ber of free tick­ets will be pro­vided to kids and teens.

A grad­u­ate of the Uni­ver­sity of Florida, where she earned a bach­e­lor’s in ed­u­ca­tion and an MBA; Ali­cia has been awarded an hon­orary Doc­tor­ate in Divin­ity. Ali­cia said she is fu­eled by her pas­sion to help kids, fam­i­lies, and ed­u­ca­tors. Her goal is to trans­form neg­a­tive be­hav­iors and lim­it­ing be­liefs by im­prov­ing the way peo­ple are think­ing and feel­ing about them­selves; that's self-es­teem.

"The world is my class­room, and it's time for every­one to know that self-es­teem be­gins with our­selves but doesn't end there. It's about ex­plor­ing our lim­it­less­ness, be­com­ing our best selves and con­tribut­ing mag­nan­i­mously to oth­ers in this world," said Ali­cia.
