There is one main motivating factor that leads young people into activism – the will and passion to change the world for the better. And while they are trying to achieve this for the world, activism actually changes them for the better. Being a young activist teaches you how to be a better person yourself. It creates responsible adults and citizens that are beneficial for the society in general. But people who have been part of this when they were young will always experience a lot of personal benefits into their adulthood.
And when I say that youth activism changes lives, you can trust me, because I have experienced that change first-hand. So let me share what... Read More »

However, with preparation, practice, and experience, people can overcome their fear, build confidence, and deliver memorable speeches.
The Importance of Public Speaking
In our modern world, the ability to present to... Read More »

A dreamer. A believer. An achiever. The man, who influenced my life and made me who I am today, and who deserves his story to be heard. I want to share a story about the most important and loved man in my life. My grandfather.
I have spent my entire life without a father, and if anyone has ever been close to a fatherly role and figure in my life it was my granddad. We shared the grief and lack of an important figure in our lives since he grew up without his mother. I believe this mutual understanding of a loss or absence of someone we needed and wanted close to us, was exactly what created... Read More »

Most of them are aware of the pressure society puts on us, and know that in order to grow, to keep on inspiring others, but also leave enough room to shape yourself to the changes of today’s world, you have to be open towards learning.
Recently I had an “inspiration call” to get in touch with a colleague of mine with whom I haven’t talked for a long time. After starting to work for a company that is a leader in the field of personal growth, spirituality and mindfulness, she got the opportunity to see the world from a... Read More »
