      I once attended a teacher’s conference where an Olympic Medalist was a key-note speaker back in 2008… It pushed me to grow both mentally and psychologically. My work-ethics wouldn’t be where it is today without that key-note speaker.

      I absorb information like a sponge so it’s not as if the opportunity of sending me there would be wasted. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Help me grow!
