Our Inspiration

“Young people have the power to change the world.”

Princess Diana.

We are deeply inspired by loving memory of our aunt who lost her battle to cancer at a young age. She was a community hero and we keep her memory alive by giving back through mental health initiatives and making a difference in our communities.
