“I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with your session this afternoon and I know that I am not alone in coming to that conclusion.  Your open and honest storytelling approach was very powerful and your messages are going to go a long way to promote honest discussions about mental health and wellness. I have heard many times about how great a speaker and ambassador of Mohawk College you are and now I have had the pleasure of confirming that myself.”
