We tell positive stories of people who, thrive in life, connect with others, and contribute to the world in the face of adversity. We ask and answer this one question: "Tell me about a time when you were resilient." Why "Thrive. Connect. Contribute."? You are here on earth to connect with others and contribute to the world.
