What’s your “why”?
I was already middle aged by the time I got married and had kids. So, seeing how the world is changing during this phase in my life makes me want to do what I can to make it a better place not only for my children, but for future generations. I currently work for a solar company because it is good for the environment, and I want to do my small part in keeping our precious planet more sustainable. I joined Blue Garnet with the same intention, to contribute to work that will impact people’s lives and make this world a better place one small step at a time.

A transformative book that I’d recommend:
The Joy Luck Club (This book made me better understand my mother, and made me realize those who come before us shape who we are.)
