WHAT DOES #THEBEAUTYOFTIME MEAN TO YOU?
The beauty of time is that it’s a gift. As soon as it arrives, it is gone. It is precious because it is ever-changing. It’s important therefore
to appreciate its beauty by being present, active and in the now. For me, it’s about giving everything I have, the best of myself, and maximising every single moment. It’s also about timely actions – planting seeds and creating opportunities.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THE CONNECTED GENERATION?
The connected generation expresses serious concerns about global issues and our shared future. Being connected means being affected:
the access to information that we have allows us to not just know about what is happening, but to feel it. The connected generation encourages global youth to participate as equal partners alongside the leaders of today’s digital change. We are able to walk in each other’s shoes, which allows us to engage and make a difference.
HOW CAN ONE EMBRACE THE SPIRIT OF THE CONNECTED GENERATION?
Stop debating the differences exhibited by the ages. Encourage all ages to do good, be good and become better humans. Embrace being tech savvy… easy, right?
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?
The seeds of change we plant today are not necessarily going to bloom tomorrow. Even if I don’t see the immediate material products of my labour, it is worth it because I’ve made my contribution. I am aware that the work I am doing is bigger than me.
WHAT DOES LEAVING A LEGACY MEAN TO YOU?
It’s not about leaving a legacy but living a legacy. You can only leave a legacy if you adhere to the values you wish to leave behind. Legacy is often attributed to one person who has achieved something, but leadership is a collaborative effort. I want to live and leave a legacy of leadership.
