Whenever something difficult comes your way, the only way to conquer it is to face it
Human rights activist and social entrepreneur Andhira Kara joined us as our speaker for last month’s talk on the topic of #CMUnderdog. Andhira spoke about how we can all play a part in being the voice of the voiceless; her personal mantra is ‘To whom much is given much is expected’. She spoke to us about her personal story growing up as the underdog: “This little girl is me, born in the Nuba mountains in Sudan. A very beautiful place, but also a place with a lot of civil conflict in the country… I couldn’t imagine that I would ever make it in life, or have something that would be successful in one way or another.” This is a powerful underdog story of overcoming extreme adversity for oneself but always “remembering to give back” and pave the way for others to reach their full potential.
