I believe the world will change when I first change myself.
My life fixation for a long time has been to simply impact those around me. However, I felt I had the right aim but my understanding of how to go about the objective was lacking. Fortunately, Jeremy pitched the Mission Immersion program to me and instantly there was an internal click. Learning about people, lifestyles, cultures, listening to stories and lending a helping hand have all become my highlights. I can truly say my perspective as it relates to life on a whole has expanded exponentially.
As a scientist in the eyes of academia, a cricketer by hobby and a humanitarian by heart, I have grown so much. My intellectual, spiritual and interpersonal faculties have all been nurtured. I have no regrets.
The international component of Mission Immersion takes me to West Africa, Ghana. An adventure I am eagerly looking forward to. The thought that I will be able to strengthen another society, learn their way of life, and increase my appreciation for what I have while at the same time, enhancing my idea of how I can be even more of a contributor to society, excites me.
I believe the world will change when I first change myself. Admittedly, my development is ongoing and I hope that one day my dream will be actualized.
