As the days become longer, and summer unfolds its warmth, I find myself reflecting on the invaluable experiences we encounter and the cherished connections we make along our life's journey.
It is with immense gratitude that I write to you today, having spent time with my niece, Mary Claire. She recently returned from an incredible semester in Sydney for her studies, only to embark on a new adventure, leaving for Lisbon yesterday for a summer internship. During her brief time home we got to celebrate her 21st birthday early, hear stories about sky diving, bungee jumping oh and of course what she learned in school!
Spending time with Mary Claire and seeing her growth, as she embraced new perspectives, cultures, and people, has reinforced the notion that stepping out of our comfort zones and exposing ourselves to different experiences is vital for personal and professional development. It is through these encounters that we become more empathetic, open-minded, and adaptable individuals, enabling us to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Cheering for you,

It is crucial to recognize our strengths, weaknesses, and values, as individuals and as a collective, to create an environment where everyone can thrive. By doing so, we ensure that our team remains resilient, innovative, and poised for success in the present and the future.
