Fagan, a Board Member of P2 and is also the author of the instant New York Times bestseller, WHAT MADE MADDY RUN, which spent a month as the No. 1 New York Times bestseller on the sports list. She spent seven years as a columnist and feature writer for ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine and as on-air talent for ESPN. 

Outside validation. Clicks. Engagement. Impressions. Likes, likes, likes. The formula for happiness that we’re teaching the next generation — that success = happiness — is backward, and the effect on our kids is profound: they are inheriting a fractured, divisive world — internally and externally. I learned these lessons first-hand while reporting and writing the New York Times bestselling book, WHAT MADE MADDY RUN, about a young athlete who died by suicide. Our kids (and all of us!) need to refocus on what truly matters: love, relationships ... OTHER PEOPLE. And that’s the heart of The Positivity Project (P2), a non-profit started by two West Point grads, two Army veterans, who wanted to change the dynamic among our youth. The mission of P2 is to empower our youth to build positive relationships and become their best selves -- by understanding and applying their character strengths. I’ve seen P2 in action in our schools and the result is transformative: young people who look one another in the eye and describe each other with words such as “creative” “kind” “brave”; young people who value one another, and each other, for who they are instead of what they do; young people who are learning that the heart of life is relationships. This band is a reminder of that crucial dynamic.  When we get caught up in our own stories, or start to feel like outside metrics are defining our self worth, we can look down and remind ourselves that relationships are what matter…that Other People Matter. 50% of the proceeds benefit The Positivity Project.
