On the subject of integrity…


I practice what I teach!

Resilience isn’t about overcoming one label. Sharing our stories doesn’t mean standing on stage and talking about the worst things that have happened to us, it’s about sharing that each and every one of us has the power to make a decision in any moment and choose a different path. We are resilience in action and we can choose to be whoever we want to be.
