Hello Veselin and Janelle,
Thank you for taking the time to share information about your program yesterday. Janelle, your story was very moving and powerful for many people in the group. Once again, I apologize for cutting you off and I hope you weren’t late for work. Veselin, I am hoping to watch your videos very soon. Your program is so valuable and both of you are doing incredible work. Thank you for bringing your insights and knowledge to the BCSOW yesterday, you added so much to the breakout session.
