Dane provided me with tools to not only recognise my worth, but also to build on and grow through my new-found awareness. At an early and crucial stage in my life, he has shown me by example how I would like to carry myself not only within my own four walls – and I mean that symbolically as well as literally – but also in the outside world, whether that would be within my community or in new spaces. I believe that Dane is a true teacher at heart, always trying to get the best out of everyone. He is naturally empathetic and well spoken which makes it a treat to listen to his takes and provides a comfortable space to grow and exchange in.
