  • Dear Our Community | ESP 10 At the core of creativity lies compassion 

“The core values here that we all have are mission and compassion, yet there are two things, following these: first, do we identify this core value & secondly, do we actually take action. Only when we do, we are able to determine really what they are, or else, it is very abstract, something that we know we have but don’t know how to apply.”
