I’ve invested so much of my time, energy, and love in #OYW . I’ve met so many people from every corner of the world. I’ve heard so many stories of resilience, of innovation, and of hope against all odds. I’ve learned a ton and I’ve grown so much too.
Kate’s words keep coming back to me: “if you want to see it in your lifetime, if you want gender equality, you need to bring in the guys”. In the fight for equal rights and opportunities just as in any other fight for justice, equality, peace, preservation... in any good fight, we need each other. We can’t do it alone.
In the last two caucuses, I’ve tried to share that lesson: we need each other. I do believe that there’s power in human connections. I believe that, in our interactions and collaboration, we will find the inspiration to spark innovation and the fuel to continue this good fight.
I am not sure what is next for me or what I will be doing in a year. I hope I can tell you in a then that I am still building a platform for the changemakers and innovators of the world. Either way, believe when I say that I do not regret every weekend, every evening, every lunch break that I invested in working for @oywlatam ♥️
