THE STRENGTH OF “DIFFERENT”
Since the age of five, Sylvia Baffour’s dream was to be a professional tourist. That’s right, a professional tourist. Her appetite for looking at pictures and for listening to stories from friend’s and family’s holiday trips was insatiable. She read books and magazines and watched every movie she could, to get as close to an actual trip as possible. In fact, Sylvia’s mother would have a hearty belly laugh whenever she overheard Sylvia declare her dream to anyone who would listen.
Today, Sylvia has traveled far and wide, living in seven countries, speaking five languages, and visiting more than 20. Her travels opened her mind and senses. She appreciates different cultures, different perspectives, and different people. This “different” strength has made her one of the most sought-after speakers and professional development trainers for Emotional Intelligence.
