We do not settle for the ordinary. We ask challenging questions and are prepared to take risks. By making the
right choices, we can be anything we want to be.
To promote Social justice
We believe in creating a world that is fair and just. We hold ourselves accountable for promoting fairness and
identifying injustice where it occurs.

politeness, and civility
