Maxine Syjuco on Wellness

"Wellness isn't just about having that healthy mind and body, it's also about growth, it's always about growth. Everything's all about being healthy nowadays, what people shouldn't forget is it involves enriching oneself too. Art plays an important part in achieving that--in growth and extending one's horizon."
