Even though I try my hardest to blend into the sea of students and shrink back from my teacher's hawk-like eyes, nonetheless he zeroes in on me, calling me to the front of the class.
Now I’m standing in front of everyone, all too aware of my heart rate thudding against my chest like a squash ball ricocheting off a racquet.
The teacher shushes the room, his marker pen squeaking against the whiteboard as he writes behind me.
In order to return to the safety and obscurity of my desk, I have to ask my peers strategic, close-ended questions that will allow me to figure out what has been written. Once I believe I have the answer, I’ll say it aloud. The better quality my questions, the quicker I gain my freedom.
Unfortunately, while my reports are graced with straight A’s, this is the one class that always seems to befuddle me, no matter how much I study. Sweat prickles under my arms with every squeak of his pen. I steel myself for the public failure that is about to occur.
Suddenly images flash in my third eye so vividly with such urgency that before I even have the chance to think it through, I blurt out what I’m seeing. The squeaky marker stops abruptly. I glance behind me and see the exact two words I’ve blurted out scrawled in capital letters.
What have I done? Gulping loudly, I swing my head around and see thirty faces staring at me wide eyed and fearful.
Because of my intuitive abilities I can sense the bewilderment in my teacher at how this is possible. Something about this triggers him. Rage begins to radiate off the teacher so it feels like I’m standing next to a human volcano just before he erupts into his accusations, all designed to deflect his obvious discomfort with me.
As my classmates deny his baseless claims, he swiftly turns on me. I stand silent as fury of injustice fills my veins with molten lava but I will not yield. Power can be expressed in many ways.
Realising how pointless it is to continue his tirade upon a wall of stoic resistance, he sends me back to my desk. Whispers, eyes and fingers point in my direction with mutterings of sorcery and witches. I feel belittled and deeply misunderstood. Tears brim along my eyes.
I’m only seventeen years old yet at this moment I realise I have a long road ahead of me, for nothing has sharper claws than people filled with fear and ignorance.
However all is not lost.
Within every challenge lies the seed of alchemy to create transformation. So I make a vow to create more tolerance, understanding and unity in the world, one person at a time.
With every experience like this my heart is cracked wide open with greater wisdom, compassion and deeper understanding of the human condition and with it, gratitude for all that has shaped me into the person I am today.

With running a vast empire and the obvious stresses, numerous duties and challenges that came with the position, the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt employed a sole Vizier.
The Vizier was responsible for all matters of daily life, from maintaining civil order, as well as overseeing special tasks and events and even investigating problems or discrepancies on behalf of their leader to ensuring the pharaoh's overall wellbeing on a daily basis.
Vizier's were viewed as the special advisor to the pharaoh and more often than not, this non-royal but prestigious position was bestowed upon a trusted family member in whom the pharaoh had great confidence.
Because of their power, Ancient Egyptian viziers, were expected to be law-abiding, impartial, and levelheaded. Hieroglyphs often depict the viziers wearing long, white robes; these symbolized their purity of heart and spirit.
As the Pharaoh of your personal empire, you now have the opportunity of working with your very own modern day Vizier, Dani Andersen, to help you powerfully transform and enhance your life and leadership to the highest levels possible in the same manner that was successfully utilised thousands of years ago.
