I blend energy, compassion, and positivity into every venture. My strengths lie in curiosity, communication, and empathy.

"You need to know your destination (your why or purpose) to walk in the right direction. If you run without any directions, you might get lucky or, more likely, end up with regrets about all the efforts you put into something that doesn't mean anything to you."
