Kim in the Community
The world wasn’t made for us, we were made for the world,” as John Green stated in The Fault in Our Stars, and it’s so true!
Community is vital within any and every city! It is through communities we are able to interact with one another, share experiences, develop relationships and work towards common goals. Each of us are born with the opportunity to make a positive impact on this planet at any waking moment!
So why not try and give back to the local society that helps support, guide and strengthen each of us, because Brantford and Brant County are full of potential for community involvement! To best serve my client(s)… that hopefully being YOU, I strive to ensure I am participating and aware of on-goings throughout the community at all times of the year. Some of these include:
