The LifeLabs Learning value that most resonates with me and why: Always Be Learning is a value that represents not only my experience working at LifeLabs, but my outlook on life. The unique combination of vulnerably trying new things, seeing setbacks as growth opportunities, and seeking out perspectives different than one’s own, expands the soul, increases empathy toward others, and enhances the human experience we call “life.”
