“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their own battles.” -Plato
I also believe personal growth is achieved by stretching oneself, by plucking and scraping at the foundation of who we think we are. We can grow back stronger, more wholesome, and more grateful by challenging ourselves to step out of what we find familiar. And by learning about what lies beyond the “Boulder Bubble”- or the even smaller bubble we think inside of- we learn about ourselves. This is why the opportunity to participate in the Youth Global Leadership program means a lot to me- to learn. To learn about volunteering, to learn about the world, to learn about each other, and– through all of these things- to learn about myself.
