My family and I escaped a Communist Dictatorship in the late 1980’s.
This has very much shaped who I am today, and what I do.
I saw first hand a people group denied any personal rights under the political philosophy of Communism – which had grave economic, social, psychological and human right implications for the individual and for families.
Ultimately, the fall of Communism occurred in my country of birth through a revolution of the people uprising and assassinating their own Dictator.
I have a deep empathy and compassion therefore for the remaining people groups around the world living under cruel dictatorship regimes.

This self –regulating system involves a broad range of classifications, which can then be reviewed by the Classification Board.
