In a world where every action holds the power to make a difference, we uncover the profound wisdom in the words of Maya Angelou: “As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”

Join our host Patricia Wu and Jessica Reyes into the essence of this timeless quote, exploring the transformative power of self-care and the boundless impact of extending a helping hand to those in need. Together, let’s embark on a quest to find balance, fulfillment, and inspiration in the beautiful symphony of self-improvement and altruism.


Prioritize your own well-being, growth, and happiness. Invest time and effort into nurturing yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally


Extend a helping hand to others in need. Practice empathy, kindness, and compassion towards those around you, fostering connections and a sense of community.


Strive for equilibrium between self-improvement and aiding others. Recognize the importance of both aspects in leading a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Embrace the duality of your hands – one for self-care and the other for altruism. By prioritizing your own growth and extending kindness to others, you create a harmonious balance that enriches not only your life but also the lives of those around you.
