"Participating in ACT transformed the way I interact with myself and others. Building my Capstone Project helped me be an Ambassador of Applied Compassion by teaching me the necessity for action and what it means to lead by example." 

Nelly Alandou

"The biggest impact of the ACT Training is how aware I am of the opportunities to be compassionate- at home, at work, at the coffee shop, etc. I now start my day with a practice that includes setting my intentions around being an Ambassador of Compassion and actively choosing an action that reflects who I truly am!"
