Charles Darwin was one of the first to argue that our facial expressions might amplify our emotions. The ‘feedback loop' or even the ‘facial feedback hypothesis' are terms used to describe this notion. Simply smiling with the same muscles can instantly put one in a good mood.

Along with her ability to speak clearly and concisely her thoughts, she has the uncanny ability to listen to people and hear beyond what is being said. This is a valuable trait when it comes to teaching and counseling others as she is able to help people see the unseen and know the unknown about themselves and the world around them. This brings me to my final point about Ann. Ann is firm, resolute, committed and hold true to her beliefs, both logically and ethically. Ann would be a valuable asset to any team she is a part of.
