As a young person facing the challenges of our world today, it‘s sometimes difficult to imagine how connected I am to making a difference on any large scale.
But just the other day, as I had been thinking about how tough it is to connect with those “in power” (i.e., elected officials, celebrities, etc.) to tell them of the trials or triumphs in my community, something amazing happened.
The Mayor of Oakland showed up on my doorstep with a precinct “random visit request” to take a poll in the neighborhood that I reside in! After having tea for almost an hour, the mayor became aware of the work I do as a youth leader and social entrepreneur inspiring kids and families around the world to find their creative voice and make a difference in the world.
As Marriane Williamson said…
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We all must truly find the voice within us that says, we are all gifted with something to give the world!
For this reason, and so much more, I am honored to share my message of global oneness and connectedness with each and every one of you.
As one youth ambassador in the campaign, Avalon Theisen, said…
The more we are aware of our connectedness, the better we‘ll treat ourselves, each other and the planet!
This is why my company—alongside 50 organizations and influencers—have come together to launch the “We Are All Connected” campaign: to inspire young people across the planet to proclaim their connectedness by dancing and singing in public!
Each act of connection will be documented through video and uploaded in a beautiful montage series called #weareallconnected.
So, for all of you out there, let’s join Avalon and kids from every continent in this global dance party to transform our future. The campaign starts this Independence Day (July 4th) to assert our INTERdependence and INTERconnectedness!
