    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Marie Rose said: “By just learning from the past and make peace with it, you start living in the present by setting new goals and evaluating whether there is any improvement or not. This helps you to make sure that the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future. The thing that helped me the most was the story the workshop facilitator told us about how his mother beat him for not having done three things: Spending the whole day without doing anything (just no purpose), lying, and skipping school. This taught me a great lesson to always have purpose and to love learning.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Marie Rose discussed the biggest change in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “During the COVID restrictions, I had enough time to explore who I am, and even my purpose, because I was a person who could spend the whole day comparing myself to others. Now, I’m no longer living life full of doubts and setbacks. I’ve also learned about saving and nowadays I’m good at it.”
    • September 13, 2021 – Marie Rose shared her favorite song and what it means to her: “My favorite song is “Thank You” by Pentatonix: It expresses a thankful message to God for He is the one who makes us survive in our daily living.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Marie Rose shared what resilience means to her: “Resilience means the ability to return to normal conditions after facing something odd or stressful.
    • March 1, 2021 – Marie Rose said her biggest lessons from 2020 were: “2020 was difficult for many people because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I’ve learned some lessons as listed below:
      Firstly, I’ve learned the power of saving for the future. During lockdown, many people lost their jobs and those who didn’t save for the future have suffered a lot compared to the ones who saved.
      Secondly, I’ve learned that patience is a weapon in case you don’t have the power to change the situation.
      Additionally, I’ve learned to live in the moment and make it more productive.”
