“WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND FREE

And my imagination had no limits, I dreamt of changing the world.

As I grew older and wiser,

I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights

somewhat and decided to change only my country.

But it too seemed immovable.

As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt,

I settled for changing only my family, those close to me, but alas, they would have none of it and now as I lay on my deathbed, I suddenly realize:

IF I HAD ONLY CHANGED MYSELF FIRST

then by example I might have changed my country and

who knows I may have even changed the world”

My life changed from the first time I met the other members of the HC and became enriched when I first met the delegates. Making sure that no mistakes occurred was the breaking point of understanding who I am. The workshop equipped me with tools and skills that I can now use to empower and transform those around me.
