We are so super excited, and emotional, we were just discussing with our team that we have been operating literally out of a 50sft office since the past 4 years, and impact has been created in such a small space. Just like our minds, we really underestimate the power of our small little brains, there is so much strength in pure belief, that the world joins you in your mission!!
