She believes that change occurs when you start to create it. She believes that by providing the right change we can move our community in the right direction that can serve us all.
Often times we are afraid to change because we are afraid of what others may think of us. There is is no shame in what you go through. Learn from it, live thru it, love in it.
"Whatever happens to the individual happens to the whole group, and whatever happens to the whole group, happens to the individual. The individual can only say, 'I am because we are. And since we are, therefore, I am.' This is a cardinal point in the understanding of the African view of man." ~John S. Mbiti
