"Silence. Give yourself a chance to your dream. Find your happiness."


This is the second digital story by Mary Florence ('Flo'), who, as a youth sport coach, seeks to inspire courage and confidence to the children she works with. A single mother herself, 'Flo' is aware of the weigh of her responsibility and her influence on the young ones' lives and she commits to her job with maternal care and concern.

In this video 'Flo' uses silence as the essential pause between everyday troubles and worries about the future, a pause that keeps one from losing sight of their dreams and getting confused on the way. A moment of silence helps 'Flo' redefine what is important to her, in order to go on and pursue it with determination.
