Sabina Read, Psychologist
"I'm forever optimistic that realistic optimism can be nurtured and manifested in every single one of us.
"It's not about being glass-half-full or wearing a smile on your dial, but rather about choosing to see ourselves, each other and the world around us through a lens that we will be OK. Things work out in the end.
"Through the lenses of realism and optimism, we cope better, preserve hope, have faith in humanity, and hold the belief that we are here to help and support one another, regardless of the adversity and challenges that cross our paths."
