Admin Assistant
Gandhi's words, "In a gentle way, you shake the world," have profoundly influenced my approach to working with children. Through 15 years of experience and interaction with kids, I've learned that sitting down with a child during a craft or coloring activity creates opportunities for listening and learning. Greeting a child by name and with a smile not only acknowledges them but also instills a sense of value. In my community, I've seen the universal need for encouragement. Whether through mentoring or volunteering, I'm dedicated to providing support and creating a positive, safe environment. These small acts are my way of making a meaningful impact and, in my own way, "shaking the world" for the better.
