Your Stories of Optimism

Here are some of the inspiring stories we’ve received so far

Eli, CEO of Kernels

"The opportunity to celebrate a movement like WE can’t be passed up and as such I am overjoyed to share my Optimism and pride that our Brand is a supporting sponsor. Together we can affect meaningful change and we ask you to come join us!”

Eli Staiman
CEO of Kernels

Gabriella DeBono, Western University

"Optimism means to live every day believing in yourself. Once you start living your life with Optimism, you will have the strength to overcome any challenges. Our greatest weakness in life is giving up on ourselves. Start every day with believing in yourself and good things will come."

Jessica Lynch
Brand Momentum Inc.

Andrew Bullis, Vancouver Film School

"Optimism is a life filled with good health, love, positive energy, and gratitude felt by ALL. Optimism starts with more heart, hopefulness, goodness and celebration of life by ALL. Optimism means that there is no joy in having anything if you don’t share."
