Jeff’s corner is a platform dedicated to encouraging young people to live a fulfilled life or in other words, to ‘live your best life’ in every way possible and to live it with love. From the way we show love to ourselves to the way we treat others, love should always be at the centre. That includes our self-care, self-reflection and how we reflect that love onto others we meet!
