Gloria's philosophy to assist in developing an awareness of the unlimited potential our Indigenous people possess. She firmly believes that everything that comes our way emotionally and physically is an opportunity from the past, to address the hidden pain, guilt or shame. In doing so we change it in to self-awareness, personal understanding and self-appreciation. For the only thing that limits us are our selves.
