I want to make the world a better place. I am an economist with a purpose: to do with my life the most good as I can. Otherwise, my love affair with the French language has me writing.En français.

I believe every child, every person has potential and it is our individual and collective duty to empower that human through care, guidance and education to become truly part of society.

Care is not enough, we need action and we need justice. We are the change we seek. Howard Thurman once wrote: “Don’t just ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you alive, and do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive”.

Are you alive? Then let’s put our energy into something bigger than ourselves and hold each other accountable to protect the children,protect the planet, protect the world’s biological and cultural diversity. Yes, we can change the world together from here. Change will not come if we wait for some other person, for some other time. We, the people are the change we seek.
