Become a leader for positive change with the Bezos Scholars Program.
Thoughts for a Rainy Day was the Local Ideas Festival founded by 2017 Bezos Scholar Scholar Dylan Hess and educator Becky Ugander. Their event opened up the conversation about mental health, featured multiple workshops on suicide awareness, LGBTQ support and allies, and many more. Through their Local Ideas Festival, Dylan and Becky worked to help people feel more comfortable in asking for help and to understand that maintaining one’s mental health is just as important as one’s physical health. Along with open dialog, their Festival connected people with local resources and support in the Wheat Ridge, CO community.
