Profile: Ilona Surgaile on finding purpose

A dream Ilona Surgaile had as a 12-year-old shaped her life-long search to find purpose in life. She was born in Lithuania and in 1996 moved to the United States where she became a member of the Baha’i Faith. Ilona serves as a receptionist in the Welcome Center at the Baha’i House of Worship where she meets people from all over the world. She is also an Executive Leadership Coach. These roles are partly in fulfillment of her dream.  Listen as Ilona shares some of her story and life philosophy.
