“Education is the most powerful weapon…”

“…you can use to change the world.”

Little by little, person by person, day by day, education makes a difference. It is a rare yet beautiful sight to see tangible change in our world, but upon seeing and experiencing it, it is truly unforgettable.

As an educator myself, I have seen this tangible change in my students, but it is not unique to the educator-learner paradigm. It can in fact be witnessed by all people, in all places, in all times. And it is a hallmark of the human spirit — that we reflect, learn, change and adapt as a species, no matter the circumstances or hurdles.

The magnificent Nelson Mandela once said such powerful words about education. And if we were to all adopt this in practicality, what a world of a difference we could possibly make!

Stay inspired,
