After spending over 20 years in Casting for television and film, most of those years in daytime tv with the soap opera General Hospital and working alongside Aaron Spelling on Sunset Beach, I realized my passion lies in connecting with people. It may sound funny, but I thoroughly enjoy meeting and connecting with others. Connecting schools around the world on 1 day has been a dream of mine for the last 9 years. When planning for the first Wickman World Summit, I remember professing that one day I will connect schools all over the world. In my own journey I have learned a lot about accepting yourself, and accepting those around me for who they are. Accepting each other is the core of connection. More than ever, it seems important to teach kids, how powerful it can be when we accept others…powerful for both parties.
