We've got a new blog post and it's a wrap up of our GiveBack Program.
Our GiveBack is when we’re out in the community, providing access to health and wellness services and treatments to homeless and vulnerable young people. Over the course of almost 6 months we provided 631 treatments to 391 young people and our grand total is now 3392!! Find out more here via link in profile
Dr. Melissa Tancredi taught us a thing or two about perseverance and suiting up in preparation for building ourselves and making ourselves Greater than we were yesterday. Acknowledging things we need to work on and our weaknesses are key to moving forward and excelling upward. That applies to ALL of us. We’re often asked if Resilience is something some are born with and others aren’t. We think everyone has Resilience within them. Just like everyone has Patience or Respect or Truth. Life shapes us and throws us curve balls that can cause us to lose touch with such qualities. But just like Tancredi said, we have to welcome the challenge in order to grow in order to find, and thus develop, our true selves. BUILD UP Your Strength. You don’t need to wait until the New Year to turn the page and start Your Next Chapter. You got this! // #iAmResilience#MelissaTancredi#CanadianWomensSoccer#teamcanada#olympian#iamcanadian#wordsofwisdom#motivations#campaign#socialgood#vancouverisawesome#yvr#survivor

Preet Didbal is the first Sikh woman mayor in U.S. history. ⠀
Didbal, the daughter of immigrant farm laborers, was sworn into her new position in Yuba City, California on Tuesday. The single mother told HuffPost that during her term, she plans to use her platform to uplift women from a variety of backgrounds. ⠀
As a rape survivor, Didbal told HuffPost she’s long had a passion for women’s heath and has been publicly telling her story for almost two years now. This year’s #MeToo campaign served as proof of the real change that comes with speaking out on sexual assault, she said.⠀
