Welcome to The Seed Pod: The Bridge Gap Community Podcast. The symbol of The Bridge program is a tree to represent the students as they grow; the seeds are the gifts that they give back to the world as they progress. This podcast is a small representation of that. Every week at The Bridge we have conversations about interesting topics and through The Seed Pod we want to share those with you and make you a part of the conversations. What you will hear are the students perspectives on fascinating and controversial issues related on personal growth as they relate to their own lives.
Episode #17. Resilience: Resilience as a biological concept is the ability of an organism to overcome adversity. A resilient ecosystem is one that can put up with a lot of changes or a lot of adversity and still prevail. So in a person, resiliency is the capacity that someone has to overcome challenges, to persevere through adversity.
In today's episode, we define what resilience is, and ask ourselves, makes people resilient?
Is it something inherent in a person? Is it genetic whether you are resilient or not? Or are there certain types of experiences that can make a person resilient?
