I am a true believer of the "power of social" & its ability to connect. People. Both globally, and even more so, locally.
I also believe it starts by asking honest questions - and it starts with ourselves. The thing that makes my heart therefore really tick is how can social media be used as a tool for self growth & development, both professionally & personally."
