We are all equal

We’re all human. We have two eyes, we bleed, we feel pain, we cry. But in a world where we’re born equal, we’re far from equal.

But when it comes to social standards and ranking our equality, we’re not equal. Inequality stems from our personal perceptions of learned behaviour passed through the generations, from our grandparents …

Growing up

Growing up is not only a journey of dips, twists and turns, peaks and valleys, but also mountains for us to climb.

What they don’t tell you about growing up is that not everyone has your back. There will be times when you will have to navigate your journey on your own. They don’t tell you how hard school will be …

Issues & change

Issues are very much the catalyst for non-change. But dealing with issues are important if we are to successfully think about, deal with and come through the other end of change. For that to happen, issues must be continually addressed at all stages of change.
