Welcome!

Hi there! Good to see you.

If I had to summarize what we do here in a micro pitch it would be the following:

“Some of us are diamonds stuck in the rough.

We do not quite know how to shine YET, because most people around us have a hard time perceiving our unique strengths. They hyperfocus on what they see as flaws. And we sometimes hyperfocus on their negative feedback and try desperately to get better and fit in.

But there are other ways! Let us uncover your many brilliant facets together and begin to put them to good use! “
