What has been your greatest highlight?
My greatest highlight would be having met so many different beautiful people and having the opportunity to help facilitate and support their personal and professional development, enabling them to become an improved version of themselves.
What did you learn most from your PEV experience?
One key thing I’ve learnt with PEV, is the importance of having a positive attitude. It immensely helps you cope better to bring constructive changes to make a good difference. Just like in life, there will always be some sort of stitch up that can effect your expectations. But nothing is ever perfect so you may as well see the good instead of dwelling on the bad!
What 3 pieces of advice would you give future Team Leaders?
1. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Your vulnerability opens you up to new possibilities and sophisticated ways of thinking, helping you grow and become a better person not only for yourself but also the people around you.
2. Trust yourself. Trust your instincts, not only is it liberating but you will see you are capable of anything if you believe it.
3. Have fun. It can be easy to lose sight of your “why’s” and get stressed in the complications of certain tasks. But by having a positive perspective you can find joy in everything you do – and that makes the whole experience so much more pleasant!
