Shawn Chaay


I enjoy being able to offer my knowledge to those that yearn for that knowledge. I love when I am able to pass on that knowledge and see others grow. I may not know the answer to questions that some may have, but can take that as an opportunity to learn together. I find this to be a beautiful part of learning where anyone and everyone can learn something new at any given time.
