UNIVERSAL PEACE FEDERATION "YOUNG ACHIEVERS AWARD"
It was a pleasure being recognised by the Universal Peace Federation for an award (5/07/2017).
The Universal Peace Federation-Young Achievers Award (UPF-YAA) was hosted by the Rt Hon Tom Blake and it was a pleasure and a great opportunity to enjoy the company of our members of parliament who warmly congratulated, encouraged and presented the awards to the participants.
Listening to the participants share their life stories and the diverse activities they were involved in was such a life changing moment. But the key message was making the decision to get out of ones comfort zone and go out there to dare boldly and steer up positive change with the aim of creating a difference or an opportunity for someone.
If you can not stand the news or sight of hunger crisis, children suffering, wars, or whatever extraneous thing, then go out there and change the narrative.
And if you are fortunate enough, or if an opportunity has been created for you, then you are obligated to create opportunities for others, to ameliorate peoples livelihood as a way of giving back and appreciating. It is just a waste of mindset if we stay enclosed in our shells or "safety nets" and do nothing about situations.
