She Wins

Most people have something that they are good at and enjoy doing. For Nadine, it is writing and turning her hand to various creative platforms to convey meaning and enhance the lives of those who observe it. German Inventor Frederick Koenig once saidWe tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have”. Nadine has her ideas, paper and pen. All is well.
