What do you like about this subject?

I find it very encouraging to know that it is possible to find one's purpose, regardless of age, education or background. It is never too late to find meaning in your life!

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I want to encourage others to develop goals and the strategies to reach them, as well as help them develop the self confidence needed to move forward in their life personally and professionally.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Too often people believe that what they have accomplished is ALL they can accomplish, that what they know is ALL they can learn, that their past setbacks are predictors of their future outcomes. Every day is a learning process. Every day, we have the chance to improve, develop and become stronger.
