“Con­sider every op­por­tu­nity that comes your way, and don’t

wait un­til you can tick every box be­fore you put your hand up. In­vest in your­self – whether that’s fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing, your health and well­be­ing, what­ever is im­por­tant to

you. Be coura­geous. Be com­pas­sion­ate. Be em­pow­ered. Be you. En­joy what you do. And if you can’t be or do those things, ask your­self whether where you are is right for you.” – Ziena Jalil, part­ner at com­mu­ni­ca­tions and pub­lic

re­la­tions con­sul­tancy Se­nateSHJ “Make sure the val­ues and cul­ture of the or­gan­i­sa­tion you work for align with your val­ues and pur­pose. We are at our most pow­er­ful, our best selves, when our ev­ery­day ac­tions align with our val­ues. Our per­sonal re­la­tion­ships ben­e­fit too – and when we are gen­uinely happy, we are also more pro­duc­tive.” – Dr Monique Faleafa, clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist and found­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of Le Va, an NGO fo­cused on Pa­cific peo­ple’s well­be­ing
