Sunday, November 15, 2015 the Ottawa Chapter of GradUit Thrivers met to celebrate the launch of the latest movement. The founding members are a group of positive, pay it forward individuals that not only make a difference, but have been on a journey that has been changing lives.
Change comes in many forms. It is said that change needs to begin within you in order for your surroundings/environment to change. Our GradUit journey began with the dream and desire to make a change in the world, shared by an inspiring woman, Melanie Hayden-Sparks, Founder of the GradUit Network. She is “the first link in a positive chain reaction that nurtures the human spirit around the world! A desire to carry on Melanie’s work, we are proud to accept the “torch” with Melanie’s blessings and support.
Penny Lee Prevost, Co-Founder and our fearless leader has been leading the way with her strong belief that we need to inspire and empower each other while modelling for our next generation. Liz M Raymond, Co-Founder provides support with her technical expertise and communication skills with a strong desire to share the GradUit strategies of success with others.
Our founding members, Kristine Gravelle-Rystenbil, Nicola Wolters, Sandy Benoit and Aleida Dickland embody all of the qualities of a true GradUit as well as expertise as we continue to mentor and support, without judgement, each other as we work towards our goals.
Continued personal and professional development with success-minded individuals in an environment that is like no other, we are certain to succeed in all areas of our lives.
