I’m a shaper, a trouble shaper.

What business includes and values, society will follow.

I deeply want to create a world where we can all belong, in our own unique way, and give grace for difference. 

I am so grateful for who I am in this moment. I am proud of who I am.

There’s no greater agony than an untold story inside you.

Anger is good, bitterness is not.

There’s no point getting people to promise without proving.

Yesterday, I thought I was clever, I went to change the world. And today, I’m wise because I’m changing myself. 

I just bumbled through like childhood - I bumbled and you know bumped away. 

I think when you feel a little different and you don’t fit in, but you don’t want to fit in, you want to still be who you are, that wildly different person, I think that’s always been in me.
