Mind over Matter is a new feature, focusing on resilient community members, known as “a shining light in our community” and includes a brief interview; photo and a personalized appreciation gift for the recipient.
It is a new collaboration between the Fox Creek Community Resource Centre, The CHAMP (Community Helpers and Mentoring Programs) Team and Fox in Focus.
The second recipient was Diane Ahn.
She was interviewed by Jennifer Becker, Director of Community Services, Sandra Hardy, CHAMP Coordinator and Brandi Camilleri, journalist from Fox in Focus on May 9th.
Diane was asked three questions; 1) How she stays positive in difficult situations? 2) How does she encourage others to face life’s challenges? and 3) What does she do for self-care?
Staying + in Difficult Situations
- “My friends and community, I’ve always had a lot of support. And my family of course. They are fantastic.”
Words of Encouragement
2. “Have a positive attitude and outcome. Always try to come up with what is positive, then what is negative in any situation.”
3. Spending girl time together – “Always make time for yourself.”
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters, compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.Print This Post
