What makes you YOU in one sentence?
Human-centered, nature-inspired, strategic empath – otherwise known as a gal trying to do better.
How will your outlook on life improve the world?
would say my outlook is one rooted in empathy yet ruthlessly solution-driven.
Our people and planet are hurting and need healing. COVID has dramatically shown us how the vulnerability of society and the terrible pain and suffering experienced could be met with a tremendous force of compassion. 1000’s of feeding schemes and community care networks were created overnight - just as businesses closed down and millions of people experienced loss of income. The increase of triggering conversations, harsh realizations about #Blacklivesmatter, #GBV (Gender-Based Violence), and loss of revenue have not only shaken the nation but the world. This is the world we live in. There is a desperate need for an earth-centric approach as well as equality, nourishment of diversity and female leadership - and a call for those custodians of society in a position of power and influence to decide on which side of this pivoting moment they find themselves.
Now more than ever … our decisions matter. Your decision’s matter.
