Being able to exercise your agency requires understanding of your needs and aspirations, as well as the ability to advocate for yourself in the society and be persistent in seeing the change come to reality. 

I offer workshops to schools and other organizations who are striving to transform themselves and life coaching sessions to individuals who are attempting to break the glass ceiling and bring change to the world.
