Maya Angelou said, “If you don’t like something change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” I cannot imagine living in a world like ours and not do anything to try and change it for the better. This is one of the reasons why I value the work we do at DAG. We are pooling our collective efforts to build a better tomorrow for everyone.
