WHAT WE BELIEVE:
-We need not forgo progress in order to advocate culture and tradition. Balance lies in the synthesis of modern and traditional.
-In the true sharing information and resources.
-We share this world. So, we must endeavor to support and encourage one another.
-Humans need humans.
-Sharing our strengths and privileges with one another makes us all stronger.
-Some are born with more than others merely by chance.
-If by chance, we’re born with more we have a sisterly responsibility to those who, also by chance, were born with less.
-The world is large with many extraordinarily talented humans in it.
-By remaining in place, we deny ourselves connection with the talent of the world.
-Consuming consciously creates global connections.
