I always talk about making a difference or changing society so it is a better place to live. But I believe that change begins at home. So recently I joined a programme called UpRising. They have different programmes running in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Cardiff.
Of course I joined the Birmingham one and since joining the programme so much has changed.
The thing I love the most about the programme is the amazing people I have met. Each person so inspiring and filled with so many stories and ideas. Everyone is so ready to help each other out and just be super supportive.
Following on from the people, the stories from the coordinator and the speakers just leave me wanting to make a difference. I was always scared that as a young person no one would take me seriously but every speaker has proved me wrong. Change doesn’t come from age but the intention and belief in making a difference.
This weekend I will be going to a leadership workshop working on my first changing making campaign and I couldn’t be more excited. WHY? Because I will be working on something I am passionate about with people whoa re just as passionate.
I will be blogging my leadership journey throughout the next few months because there is a quote:
“We all have the potential to become leaders, but developing these skills is a never ending journey. “
So as I start my journey I ask you to reflect upon yours and see the change you can make to the world around you. Remember, no change is too small.
