  • Children can teach is so much! From presentation skills to having an open heart well done

  • Mary Jane Patterson

    A very basic lesson – it makes such a difference to know a little bit about someone’s story. And it takes courage to share our own.

  • Excellent speech. This speech reminds me of the importance of authenticity and curiosity.

    Oftentimes by being curious and remain authentic and respectful, we will find out things you wouldn’t have known otherwise and connect with people in an authentic way. But sadly, sometimes people are too afraid to be curious and offending other people therefore we act in a polite (but passive aggressive way) to hide ourselves and actually pushed people away.
