TEDXYOUTH 2016

I shared the journey of how the Humanitarian Organization for Providing Empowerment (HOPE) started and our work with marginalized population groups in Vancouver.

Here, I challenge the common-held beliefs about charity work and humanitarianism to one of connection. Ultimately, how we each choose to intertwine our lives with the lives of people around us matters in how we set out to make history in this world.
