Outside the School

Many individuals who have visited my office have asked me why I don’t display framed awards, certificates, degrees, etc on the walls of my office and my humble answer is, I don't see any walls around my office to display them. I love stories and I am fascinated with the unique attributes of each person, find me in my office whenever you need somebody to listen to your stories.
