We live in an age of influence. Between YouTube, social media and 24/7 media, kids are constantly being influenced by outside sources.
As a parent, I was worried about my child's choice to look up to reality stars and celebrities, rather than to figures who are making a difference in the world. I wanted to show them all the amazing people that were out there making the world a better place and the internal skills that they needed to pursue their passion (persistence, resilience, compassion, etc).
Now that my kids are teens and tired of hearing these stories from me (insert eye roll), I thought I would share them with the rest of the world and hope together we can build a generation of well rounded contributors of social good.
