Sarah Lynn Rees
There are more questions than answers but there are specific moments in time that inform how we define ourselves, our identity and ethos, both personal and professional. There are mistakes and achievements that test our confidence and ego, moments where we question how we navigate forward and moments where our thoughts are reflected in a perfectly articulated sentence becoming the most effective tool yet. It’s important to remember where these moments came from and how they changed or solidified the bricks we use to build ourselves. Sarah will reflect on 20 of these moments and questions so far that underpin her ever developing architecture and personal ethos.
