Why Academic Life Coaching?
I like working with teenagers and youths because it is the perfect age to assist them in creating healthy beliefs and habits. Most importantly, it is the perfect age to put them on the right track to self explore in a non-judgmental environment and to take crucial decisions on how to lead their lives.
