Sydney Agus is a junior studying Industrial Engineering at Northwestern University. After interning at Salesforce last summer and seeing their workplace wellness initiatives, she became interested in investigating the ways to bring the discussion of wellness to her peers at Northwestern. Through conducting an independent study with help of one of her professors, she became passionate about starting a conversation about the obsession with achievement that she witnesses with her peers as well as with herself.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
