How can we create a legacy that matters?

Her dream is to inspire 1 billion souls to share their gifts and live their raison d'etre. She has a love for early mornings, dance parties, and epic moonshots.


"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with eternity."

-- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
