“Retina is a great idea as mental health issues have been skyrocketing in recent years so to be part of a startup that can actually help people is a fulfilling opportunity, with ideas that can really  improve conditions for people, with a focus on community calming through training and meditation gardens it provides different ways to help people. I am particularly interested in pushing the ideas of community and meditation gardens, I believe it is important for people to have a nice space to relax surrounded by a clam environment, something I feel the majority of businesses lack.”
