Giving Warriors means…

Catherine is a visual person. The first thing that comes to Catherine’s mind is a feeling of people banding together, similar to warriors of old, who have a sense of teamwork , camaraderie and tribe ship in making  something happen.

A warrior who has a sense of purpose but it’s for giving so it’s coming from a place of love and, and giving greatness into love.

One Last Thing

The last advice that Catherine has for the youth is to “Love yourself. Start the journey to learn what it means to love and support yourself. “
