We are all familiar with the line that says it’s not what we are underneath but what we do that defines us.
I am pleased to note that the recipients of the Peter Legge Leadership Award and business students whom I recently met at Douglas College know what they want in life and are driven to reach what they aspire for.
The meeting was inspiring at the same encouraging. An international student from Vietnam wants to be a banker; a professional from Brazil aspires to finish his International Business Management post-degree diploma to start anew with his family in Canada and two of the recipients of Peter Legge Leadership Award/Fund are focused on reaching their full potential by helping others and making an impact in their community.
I am thankful for this delightful “meet and greet” facilitated by Douglas College Foundation and Alumni Relations.

Touched by their stories and idealism, I shared with them the “strangest secret” of Earl Nightingale, an American radio speaker and author. Now let me share this with you.
