The Be The Change Course is designed to take your idea, or dream and give you the skills and confidence you need to make it a reality. The participants of this week long program will work each day with Founder and President of the Global Volunteer Network, Colin Salisbury.
G'day I'm just an island girl from one of the 700 islands and cays in The Bahamas trying to make my dream come true! I believe that everyone has a right to be whatever he or she wants to be, even though society can often keep us caged in. After losing my mother to her battle with breast cancer I realized that watching her and her love for people led me to get more involved in community outreach giving me a desire to inspire young people such as myself and hopefully giving them a sense of pride, love and respect not only to themselves but to others as well, so that could later stem to them becoming dynamic global citizens ready and willing to tackle the world and some of the many problems it faces. I live by the saying that
“A man is never too weak or too wounded to fight, so long as the cause is greater than his own life.”
