I believe in being creative and expanding the mind. Growing up in an area where venturing out was not the norm, I remained around the Richmond area for most of my life, not really trying to get to know anyone or anything outside of my comfort zone. Upon entering National Holistic Institute in 2005, I was thrown into an environment with all walks of people and had to interact with them for an entire year. That sparked my interest in people. We have many talents but few gifts—I believe we need to find and nurture gifts into benefits for others.
