There are pivotal points in a person’s story that redefines their path. An inevitable part is failure. Hearing the ‘f’ word can elicit dark and dirty feelings. However, failure can also be accompanied by learning, relearning and moving forward.

Freya shares her story of failing forward in both her studies and teachings at RMIT university. Through her journey as an educator, she has learned the value of empowering students to fail in their own way, as failure is often not the end; it is a reminder of the beginning. She invites you to explore the fundamental principle of being a human and practicing self-compassion during your first attempt in learning. This week explores the notion of reclaiming failure as a way of failing our way forward; together.
