To celebrate my birthday Sept 6th, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane. Below are the values I developed for my youth empowerment business CAM London ( Formerly Scarlet Workshops), I wrote this 7 years ago in 2014 and to be honest, nothing has changed. Other than a few specifics, these values are literally who I am, what I believe, what I want for the world and the future. When you truly operate from passion, nothing really changes 🙂
