I used to hate life. I hated my job, I hated the people I worked with, I hated existing. I hated, felt hopeless, and didn’t want to live. I was a depressed person. I felt like a depressed person, I acted like a depressed person, I felt the hopelessness of a depressed person.
And now, after Project Spices…
I don’t have the inner pain that used to be a part of me all the time…
Now, I am a person who has hope. I am able to think positively. I take on challenges I vowed I would never do. I am able to meet some of the goals I make for myself. I’m not devastated about the goals that I don’t meet; I’m still able to feel hope that I can accomplish those goals.
My job still isn’t easy, but when I drive to work I find that I am still able to have positive thoughts about my life. In addition, a lot of the same situations and the same people that once brought a lot of frustration and hurt, I find that a lot of those things don’t bother me with the same intensity as before. . . . In short, life is better. Before, life was so awful that I thought it was a miracle that I would even put one foot in front of the other. The difference is, even though I am still a work in progress and am still taking things day by day, I feel as though I can walk greater distances…
Educator with Depression for 20 Years
Through SPICES, I was able to get down to the root of the problem. . . . I have learned a lot about others and myself through SPICES. I really have. It’s amazing to know that someone out there wants the best for you. I challenge myself and my environment every day by countering the culture that has been instilled within me. Every day is a learning process, and SPICES has taught me to stay positive throughout the good and bad times. I am glad I gave SPICES a chance, because I now live a healthy lifestyle. I would highly recommend SPICES to everyone, whether or not they think they don’t need it. SPICES will be changing lives in a way that will influence positivity and love throughout the world.
Visionary. Gifted. Anointed. Groundbreaking. Lively. Theatrical. Informative. These are just some of the words that describe the Dr. Koo experience. What she did in a matter of 8 hours was remarkable. She came in, peeled back my onion, and helped me dump out all of the stuff that was holding me back. I now have a deeper appreciation and feel much lighter than before. Dr. Koo is a human kaleidoscope. She empowers, uplifts, transforms, confronts (in a loving/direct way), breaks down and builds up. Her approach is one that is force to be reckoned with and cannot be duplicated.
Dr. Koo had her non-profit MAPS 4 College and I was working in a community that would benefit from her program. Through my advocacy MAPS 4 College came to our community and started working with local underserved high school students. In the years she spent with the students, each student graduated from high school, went to college, graduated from college (and graduate school), and secured employment. The premise of MAPS 4 College was to teach students valuable leadership skills that could be applied in personal relationships, school, and work. She applied her SPICES Transformational Model to transform the lives of her students. I have personally witnessed her students grow up from teenagers to young active adults. On top of working directly with her on multiple programs and research projects, Dr. Koo is an expert in networking and program development. She’s a well-rounded transformative leader who has made a difference in people’s lives and communities.

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending one of Dr. Sarai Koo’s training sessions and am very impressed by her candor and professionalism. I found the training both powerful and effective and I have heard nothing, but good comments from coworkers. She has the ability to get to the root of a issue and communicate in a way where everyone could understand and relate. I especially appreciated that she personalized the session and made the information relevant to both our professional and personal lives. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Working with Sarai was an utter treat. She is one of the most forward thinking, bright-minded women I have come across in both my academic and professional career. I believed in her Maps 4 College program as well as her genuine desire to create successful paths to higher education for students. Sarai is a born leader and will be a fantastic asset wherever she lands.
When I think of Sarai, there are a few words that come to mind: integrity, commitment, tenacity, and service. She is one of the hardest working people I know, and I am constantly amazed at what she manages to achieve. As a leader, Sarai pushed me to do what I needed to do, providing just enough help to allow me to move forward. Sarai is an incredible orator, with an amazing ability to inspire and motivate. Ultimately, I think the thing that makes Sarai most effective at what she does is the fact that she genuinely cares about the people she works with. This is evident in the way she listens, tends to their needs, and encourages them.
Sarai has truly been a mentor to me. Her passion for helping students of all backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses succeed academically and emotionally is undeniable. As a supervisor and leader, she was and continues to be encouraging, creative, hard working, and eager to teach others the skills needed to succeed. I am truly appreciative of everything Sarai has taught me and know that she will continue to succeed wherever life takes her.
Sarai is a true leader. She is an inspiration to me and many others. Its amazing to see how she has transformed the attitude and lives of so many young minds. I worked with her 2 years ago and when I went back to visit her and her students during a Christmas get together, I saw a tremendous transformation in the students. They were talking like world class leaders, filled with confidence and clarity. They knew what they wanted from life and how to achieve it. They were filled with love for others and were like one big family. It was a true example of Sarai’s emotional and mental support and guidance to them. Sarai is a pleasure to know, spend time with and learn from. I would be honored to work with Sarai again.
