Hope is what we have when there is first belief in possibilities. Belief stems from knowledge, awareness and conviction.

How many times have you found yourself standing at the kitchen counter inhaling some quick snack (aka dinner!) because you simply didn’t have time to sit down and eat a proper meal?
