What makes us happier together? This question has followed me through various academic degrees, careers, countries, and spiritual studies. I learned: it’s not money, intellect or background, it's our human potential for abilities like purpose, compassion and collaboration, that allows us to thrive. It inspires me that this is teachable.

Happiness happens by choice, not chance. I aim to be so happy that those around me want to step into my light. My daughter’s autism diagnosis sparked my realization that connection, joy and purpose matter deeply and are rarely explicitly taught as skills. I believe in proactively equipping children with tools to thrive rather than reacting once mental health issues arise.
