“Who can’t relate to the intimidation of public speaking. To step up and give an account of your personal experiences. To show people, in many case strangers, a little bit of who you are and what you have learned about yourself is a courageous thing to do. A genuine articulation of those insights and the processes that encouraged them are things to be valued. Discovering who we are, that we have worth, and that there is a contribution we can make are all highly meaningful endeavours.
What a gift… for the potential that exists within us to be recognized, encouraged and acknowledged by others in community. Thank you, Bridges, for investing in a foundation from which to build a future.”
