Here is a Q+A with Quentin where he shares what risk means to his own life, and his experience as a Magic Sessions member:
What does risk mean to you?
Risk implies that I will experience a loss but a loss I can accept.
How do you implement risk into your life?
I implement risk into my life by focusing more on the potential gain then the losses.
Where in your life do you surrender to risk?
I surrender to risk when it comes to supporting issues and people.
Describe your favorite risk moment.
My favorite risk moment was back in the 8th grade. My class at the time decided to pick on a girl on my class for a petty reason. I thought it was stupid and said I would tell our teacher what was going on. That put me against everyone "cool" in our class and I didn't care. She didn't deserve to be treated that way and I stood by what I believed to be right. On our graduation day she pulled me aside and thanked me for standing up for her. We're still connected on Facebook today and she's a mother now with a great husband.
Why are you a member of Magic Sessions?
I'm a member of Magic Sessions because I enjoy meeting wonderful and passionate people in my community that are doing something positive.
Describe a meaningful, positive connection that has come from Magic Sessions.
I've had the pleasure of meeting Julia Handelman of Youth Yoga Project. Since meeting and connecting at Magic Sessions we have met and enjoyed each other company outside of the meetings. We have a lot in common and always have a great time out together.
