A psychology professor and digital influencer, Dr. Peace Amadi takes a look at our relationship with social media through a psychological lens. In this brief and poignant talk, she identifies reasons we are compelled to engage social media and suggests ways to begin reversing its negative effects.
Dr. Peace Amadi (Psy.D) is a professor of psychology at Hope International University, a speaker and writer, and the founder of The Pink Couch – a blog and digital community that challenges women to “get to the heart of the matter” in their pursuit of love, happiness, and success. Additionally, she is the co-founder of The Ruby Project (a non-profit that empowers girl survivors of abuse & trauma, using the creative arts), a former beauty queen (Miss Nigeria in America 2007), and an emerging media personality. Equipped with a doctorate in psychology (PsyD) from Azusa Pacific University, and a BA in psychology from UCLA, Peace both travels around the country and finesses digital space to help women overcome roadblocks to self-esteem and self-worth, discover their purpose, and maximize their influence in a world that craves their unique contributions. With great vision, insight, and instincts for strategy, she aims to empower and prepare the world’s next influencers and leaders.
