My greatest mentors in my life has always been women. They were the ones who fueled my passion to succeed and to never compromise my values for anything less than great.
From nunas (older sisters) to ajummas (middle age women) to teachers and professors, women were the ones who taught me the values that I hold onto today.
I see women as beings who are so sensitive to their surroundings and their understanding of life, that I can’t seem to be able to grasp how their perception works. The way they perceive life is different from men.
There are four teachers who helped shape my dreams.
Reem Bassous - For teaching me to be Fearless and to hold onto my values
Lisa Kitagawa-Akagi - For teaching me to have a heart and love
Linda Dorn - For teaching me how to draw from my heart and opening my visual literacy
Yida Wang - For teaching me sensitivity and respect to the things we see and taking advantage of manipulating life
