Sisu is a Finnish word for determination and inner fortitude in the face of extreme adversity. Gentle power is to apply sisu with wisdom and heart.

"She is a wonderful, caring, compassionate and giving person with super intelligence – I now know why people have started labeling her the new social scientist on the block."
