Choose Happiness, Please!

This afternoon I received an unexpected phone call from an old friend. Even before I had reluctantly answered the call, my mind was racing ahead of me, predicting the kind of conversation I was about to have.

Moving Up!

This week, while working with some senior children, I’ve had ample opportunity to reflect on what makes the UAE so special.
