Two keys words as a takeaway for all participants, one is identity and the other one is perception.
Identity is what you made yourself to be or what you created in you is yourself and perception is you in the eyes of others, you didn’t create it but others will look at you, see how you behave, how you work, your character of how you talk, how you interact and now in most cases the identity we think about our self is different of what people think of us.” he said.
