Who did your project serve and what suffering did it address?
My Capstone Project served students and community participants, and it addressed the need for curricular programs in colleges, universities and communities focused on compassion education.

How did this project address that suffering?
The project provided various resources and practical tools for understanding and practicing compassion towards others and oneself.

What was the reported impact on or feedback from participants? On yourself? 
A collection of people from different areas of the community brought such dynamic perspectives that I considered myself lucky to be a part of the group. Our discussion was heartfelt, thoughtful and focused. Through the conversation, we were able to identify roadblocks that might be encountered when infusing compassion into policy.

How has the ACT Program helped you become an Ambassador of Compassion? 
The ACT Program has opened so many possibilities in my vocation as a teacher.

What advice would you give to someone who's considering participating in the ACT Program? 
I highly encourage future participants to consider the program. Compassion is an essential element of our professions, personal lives and civic lives.
