The most exciting place Garyl has ever visited was the most impactful of her life. Garyl visited the small village of Kanungo, Africa, where she spent an entire month teaching other educators how to maximize results from their students while having absolutely no resources. For a people with so little, they offer so much! The villagers taught Garyl that no matter what hardships a person endures, survival is possible with an attitude of gratitude and a dependence on one another to make it through one day at a time.

Garyl’s Mantra: “Today, you can decide to walk in freedom. You can choose to walk differently. You can walk as a free person, enjoying every step.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
