We live our values every day

H&Sers are amazing, at work and everywhere else. Here are some of their stories.

Humans and Stories - Kristie Yeung
Copy Supervisor/Dance Diva

I like to think of myself as being a little bit like Beyonce. I heard she’s quite shy off stage, and I can totally relate to that. As a child, I was shy, but dancing really helped with that. Through dance, I was able to express myself and gain the confidence to do things I previously felt I couldn’t do.

I love dance because it’s just so awesome. It’s a physical activity. It gets your heart going, so you always feel wonderful afterwards. It's creative, so it's fulfilling in that way. It’s also social. People have always danced together—there's a huge social aspect to it. All these things make it an excellent release after work. If you've had a long day, there’s no better feeling than jumping around and moving your limbs wildly about yourself—because when else do you get to do that? It’s very liberating.

Humans and Stories - Reza Ladak
Account Supervisor/Human Advocate

Over the past 6 years, I've worked with various nonprofit organizations here and overseas. My parents are immigrants; they came from East Africa. So they know what it’s like to have nothing. Growing up, they always stressed, “if you have something, you should always give back. You’ll feel better giving than receiving.” And that’s really what it is. When I went to Lebanon, when I went to Haiti, there was no better feeling than being able to provide for someone else who had no hope of giving back to you. That’s what drives me to want to keep being part of organizations, and helping out, and doing everything and anything I can. I haven’t found anything in life that feels better than giving, even knowing I won’t get anything back.
