Description

I have found through sociological research and observation that body language defines how people perceive us. The importance of the first handshake, the manner we bring our hands together while talking, or the way students use their fist to rest on their chin while in class -- all these mannerisms explain to the potential employer, the vivid listener, or the professor how we feel without consciously knowing it. The purpose of my work is to expand awareness to professionals towards implications of their presented body language.
